    This mosque is the second largest in the world. Even the carpet & the chandeliers inside are amazing!

    The great Hassan II Mosque was commissioned by its namesake, King Hassan II, in part to provide Casablanca with a single landmark monument. Designed by French architect Michel Pinseau, construction of the Hassan II Mosque began in July 1986 on land reclaimed (without compensation to the former residents) from a run-down area near the sea. It was completed in 1993 after great expense and artistic labor, and the result is one of the largest and most beautiful mosques in the world. Its gleaming newness and tremendous wealth is a stark contrast against the rest of Casablanca.

    Mind boggling, spectacular, breathtaking. Built on man-made promontory over Atlantic. Guided tours Sat-Thur for non Muslims. Check schedule & dress code.

Description:

The Great Mosque Hassan II of Casablanca is superlative and pioneering in many ways. Built between 1986 and 1993, it stands tall elegantly between the ocean and sky, with its 200 feet high minaret. It can accommodate up to 25,000 worshipers, making it the largest religious building in the world after Mecca and Medina. Its wide esplanade makes it easier for you to admire the harmony of its design. That is not all, you can enter and explore its technology, its madrasah, its library, its national museum and its extensive conference rooms.
