Bab Boujeloud mosque

GPS coordinates: 34°03’40.6″N 4°59’04.2″W (34.061272, -4.984486)

Non-Muslims won’t be allowed to enter the mosque, but we still can admire decoration of the entrances. Anyway the mosque is located next to Boujeloud gate, so it’s difficult to miss it.

On the 1st picture you can notice wings of swifts. Birds are cuddling up each other on wood carving of the gate (night temperature was +8°С). The same way swifts were perching on city walls since evening.
