Koutoubia Mosque-one of the most beautiful buildings in North Africa. The unique feature is that when the minaret was built, nearly ten thousand bags of precious spices were mixed into the mud of the cemented stones to make the mosque exude a strong fragrance, so it is also named "fragrant tower". There are lighting slots in the alcove of the shrine and its two wings on the two-span perimeter. The wooden structure "Muknas" honeycomb three-dimensional carvings can be located at a lower position. This unique and beautiful setting will be used in future buildings. It never appeared.
Came on March 7, 2019. When you come to Marrakech, you must come to see this mosque built in the 11th century, which is the center of the old city of Marrakech. Non-Muslims cannot enter the mosque, so the main attraction of this attraction is the minaret of the mosque. This minaret is the commanding height of Marrakech, even before Hassan Tower, this minaret is the tallest building in Morocco. The minaret is also called the "fragrant tower" because of the large amount of spices mixed in its building materials. Although it has gone through thousands of years, the "fragrant tower" still has a fragrance. I leaned closer and smelled it, and I could indeed smell a faint scent similar to that of a thousand years ago.
