Visit the beautiful Tin Mal mosque in the High Atlas Mountains on this day trip from Marrakech! Drive via Tahanout to Asni and on to Tin Mal mosque, a great historical and architectural site! Located in the High Atlas mountains of North Africa, it was built in 1156 to commemorate the founder of he Almohad dynasty, Mohamed Ibn Tumart. It was the first Quranic school and was at the start of the Almohad conquest to push out Almoravid dynasty. It is one of the two mosques in Morocco open to non-Muslims, the other being the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca. The prototype for the Tin Mal mosque was the Great Mosque of Taza, also built by Abd al-Mu’min. The Koutoubia in Marrakech was in its turn modelled on it.
