High Atlas Sights

Shrine of Haïm ben Diourne

Fodor's Review

Site of one of the few Jewish festivals still held in Morocco, this complex contains the tombs of Rabbi Mordekai ben Hamon, Rabbi Abraham ben Hamon, and others. The shrine, known locally both as the "tigimi n Yehudeen" and "marabout Juif" (House of the Jews in Arabic and French, respectively), is a large white structure. The moussem generally happens in May. Tip the gatekeeper after a tour—anything between 5 and 15 DH is fine.
