HASSAN II MOSQUE
The Hassan II mosque is a mosque located in Casablanca (Morocco). Partly built on the sea, it is a religious and cultural complex, spread over nine hectares and includes a prayer hall, ablution room, baths, a Koranic school (madrassa), a library and a museum.
The prayer hall can accommodate 25,000 faithful in its total area of 20,000m2 and 80,000 on its courtyard.
The Hassan II Mosque is one of the largest mosques in the world, and has a minaret that is 200 to 210 m tall, according to sources, the tallest in the world.
Craftsmen recruited from all the cities of the kingdom carved 53,000m2 of wood and assembled more than 10,000m2 of zellige (ceramics) for this place of worship. This mosque was created thanks to the vision of the late King Hassan II of Morocco.
