Just off the main road, with, as others say, the caretaker nearby who will unlock the building for you. Interesting and peaceful. Notice the owl up in the rafters if he/she is still there.

Beautiful architecture; un-obscured study of lines and shapes; interesting history; peaceful location. We stayed in an auberge very near to Ijoukak, got a ride to Tin Mal and returned to Ijoukak on foot. A nice walk. Beautiful architecture (as are many mosques); however, this not-in-use mosque is open to women and non-Muslims. When we arrived the doors were locked, however,... More

This relatively ancient mosque, built in 1120, was one of the earliest spiritual centers of the Almohads, a major Moroccan empire at the time controlling also Islamic Spain and, for a while, Algeria and Tunisia. It's very similar in style to the Koutoubia Mosque in Marrakech, so this is a good way to get a feel for classic medieval Moroccan... More

A bit out of the way but just a few minutes off the road to Tizi n' Test, the mosque was built in the 12th Century, and looks more like a castle than most mosques. A villager is usually available to let you in and explain about some of the history and answer any questions - they can speak pretty... More

I wouldn't drive a long way to see the mosque, but it was part of day's entertainment of driving over the Tizi n Test, and it is just 5 minutes off the road. As we arrived, a young man with a key appeared (he was watching the road), let us in, and explained things in English for about 15 minutes.... More

Being the only mosque besides the one in Casablanca, where non muslims can enter, this excursion was well worth it. In appearance more like a fortress, the once ruined interiors have been renovated and if you have the time its worth the effort

It's over an hour winding driving to get to Tin Mal from Imil. The scenery on the way is kind of interesting and there were a couple of abandoned kasbahs before you get to Tin Mal. The mosque is interesting but will not take take you more than 20 minutes to see. I'll say give it shot if you are... More

Beautiful mosque, worth seeing. 700 years old. A horse and cart ride will take there and other historic places
