The Mausoleum of Sidi Sahab, generally known as the Mosque of the Barber, is actually a zaouia (madrassa) located inside the city walls of Kairouan. It was built by the Muradid Hammuda Pasha Bey and Murad II Bey.
In its present state, the monument dates from the 17th century. The mosque is a veneration place for Abu Zama' al-Balaui, a companion of the prophet Muhammad, who, according to a legend, had saved for himself three hairs of Muhammad's beard, hence the edifice's name.

The mosque's architecture is so beautiful, with paintings on the wall, the picture is slightly out of balance, a good resolution

nice the view as the presentation of the upper place of the Barber's mosque,with the white cone to outline perfect against the blue of the sky.The details are perfect.

beautiful addornments of this mausoleum. I liked ist style. the image has good light and sharpness, but the framing could be improved. a vertical format catching the tower and a slice of the tiles and arches would be interesting, or an horizontal format concentrating the view only in the tiles and the arches.

Nice detail from the Mausoleum. Nice colors and patterns.

tile art always intriguing, as I liked the Portugal "Azulejos".
Here is one suggestion: Most times I'd take this in 16:9 aspect ratio, or even crop just to show the mosaic/tiles by itsel, and only. This because the tiles are the main subject - should look as the main object on image.

Nice repetition of the curved arches at the bottom of the frame. I might have blurred the grainy sky. A superb warm vs cold color contrast between the blue and yellow and the diagonal axis of the roof provides good dynamism. Excellent repetition of the artwork on the fg facade. Tfs!

an interesting minimal composition that focuses on some elegant and attractive architectural and decorative elements. I like the strong lighting and chromatic contrasts that are very agreeable and add interest. There's also a fascinating contrast between the atmosphere of the shady lower part of the frame and the brightly lit upper one. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

I had not idea that there is a Berber mausoleum, but now I see it.Fine architectural workmanship with fine pastel colour hues and high sharpness. Well done
