Hassan II Mosque : A tour

mosque hassan iiFor today’s post , I am going to share with you my most favorite place in Casablanca , Morocco . I could spend all day discovering or just contemplating this Moroccan Masterpiece ! – A world wide record The Hassan II Mosque is It is the largest mosque in Morocco and Africa and the 7th largest in the world and is located in Casablanca, the economic and business capital of Morocco. -Architecture All of the granite, plaster, marbler , wood and other materials used in the construction, were extracted from around Morocco. And the beauty behind all of those patterns , fabrics , lights was a results of a great collective workshop of six thousand traditional Moroccan artisans worked for five years to create the abundant and beautiful mosaic, stone and marble floors and columns, sculpted plaster moldings, and carved and painted wood ceilings . – A spectacular location The mosque stands on a promontory looking out to the Atlantic ocean, where you can assist to an amazing sunset during the Prayer call . I can’t get enough of this place , every time I go to Casablanca I should visit it . I feel so proud that this great construction is a live legend of Moroccan / Islamic art . mosque hassan ii hassan ii mosque mosque hassan ii mosque hassan ii hassan ii mosque mosque hassan ii
