Mosque of Hassan II
Saturday, 9th September 2006 by James Turnbull
Built on reclaimed land within Casablanca, Morocco is the Mosque of Hassan II – the second largest religious monument in the world.
Work started in 1986 to celebrate the 60th Birthday of Morocco’s then king, Hassan II. The most impressive part of this building is easily the world’s tallest minaret at 210m tall. Clearly seen from miles around the minaret is further highlighted by a green laser beam that each night points from the top towards Mecca.
