In Casablanca you can see the greatest Hassan II Mosque that was built only in 1993. In size, it is in the seventh place in the word and the only one in Morocco. Minaret’s high is 210 metres – that is a world record. Its unusual thing is a laser beam fitted at the top, which is electronically operated in the evening. It is oriented towards Mecca, across the sea. Hassan II Mosque was built right on the seaside on a special brow that borders on the Atlantic Ocean.
The floor of the mosque is partly consisting from the glass. Through this glass, you can see the sea bottom. The Mosque inside capacity is 25 000 people, outside area can have up to 80 000 people. If you once can visit this mosque, you will remember it forever. The best time for visiting it inside during the ebb and flood. At this time the waves bump the walls and people inside have the feeling that the mosque sails like a ship.
Michel Pinseau, a famous French architect, was the author of this wonderful mosque. He tried to depict all main details of traditional features of Arabo-Spain architecture that was popular in the Medieval. Approximately there was spent about 800 million USA dollars for the building. The best materials and accessories for the mosque were brought from the whole world. The marble was taken from Agadir and granite from Tafraoute. The luxurious chandeliers were made by a special order in Venice. Next - Kul Sharif Mosque
