Photographer's Note

A view on formerly called El Mansour mosque, known today as the Kasbah mosque, which refers to the so called district in the south of Marrakech medina. It was built in 13th on reign of sultan Yacoub El Mansour. But it was destroyed by an explosion and rebuilt in 1569. At that date it was called "Golden Apples Mosque", because it is said the bowls of its skylight were made with the golden jewels of Yacoub El Mansour's wife. As it is the case for almost every mosque in Morocco, the mosque is dedicated to prayers and is forbidden to non muslin people. It means most of tourists can't visit it !
