It's okay. I dont think its anything extraordinarily special from the outside. I think you'll appreciate more if you went in but non-muslims allowed. Gardens are alright- you'll see much better in the rest of Morocco.

Normally Koutoubia at any time you can go to see; but just the muslims can get access to his minaret.

Apologies. I’m not actually sure what time jummah starts. When we went we spent the whole morning there and that way we didn’t miss it. If you look non tourism guides it may help.
