Hassan II Mosque
The Hassan II mosque is a mosque situated in Casablanca (Morocco). Partially improved, it is a religious as well as cultural complex, topped by 9 hectares, and consists of a petition hall, an ablution area, bathrooms, a Koranic institution (madrassa), a collection, and a museum.
The prayer hall can accommodate 25,000 faithful in its overall area of 20,000 m2 as well as 80,000 in its yard.
The Hassan II Mosque is one of the largest mosques worldwide and has a turret that is 200 to 210 m tall, according to sources, the highest in the world.
Craftsmen recruited from all the cities of the kingdom sculpted 53,000 m2 of wood as well as assembled more than 10,000 m2 of zellige (ceramics) for this church. This mosque was created thanks to the vision of the late King Hassan II of Morocco.
