Apart from the entire palace, the mosque is surrounded by a 85 m enclosure. Its walls are made, alternately, a layer of panneresse (bricks in parliament) and two layers in boutisse (bricks caught in the thickness of the wall).
It is strangely oriented towards the east, not to Mecca (northeast). The mihrab, a semi-circular niche normally indicating the direction (profane) of Mecca, lies opposite the entrance, south of the minaret. The central hall has twenty-eight pillars.
Between the mosque and the western door of the palace was the place du Annoy, on which the court was held.
