Hassan II Mosque, Casablanca

4.7
One of the largest mosques in the world, Hassan II Mosque is an impressive place of worship and a symbolic landmark of the city. Nearly 1,000 construction workers and 10,000 artists took nearly seven years to complete this structure, known for its highly decorated interior (viewable only as part of a guided tour), rich in Islamic artistic motifs, including geometric shapes and sections from the Quran. The 210 m (689 ft) tall minaret stands above the old town, while the main building looks out across the Atlantic Ocean.

  • This Mosque is awe inspiring. The size alone is incredible, but the attention to design just takes it over the edge. It was crowded since Friday is the Muslim holy day, just keep this in mind when visiting. Also I beg you to remember that this is a place of worship and should be treated with respect no matter when you visit.
  • The mosque was stunning. It's situated right on the ocean, and its size, proportions and detail are very impressive. The only way non-Muslims can see the interior is on a tour. You can buy tickets (DH130) beginning a half hour before each tour at the entrance to the complex about 200 metres in front of the mosque. The inside is really beautiful. The tour is pricey but the interior is worth seeing.
  • While there is not much touristy stuff to do in Casablanca, this place lives up to its Grand Mosque nickname. Tours are provided and the only way to get into the mosque so make sure you don’t try to go during the Call to Prayers. The details are grand and beautiful! English guide was wonderful and detailed!
  • In my opinion one should visit this place if you are visiting Casablanca for exposure very good experience. I found it very big and location is very good just amazed what can I say more. People of all different countries visit this Mosque I must congratulate those working in this Mosque very good Job and authorities who allocate money very good Job. Good luck!
  • At the end of a long trip to Morocco, we had a chance to see this mosque, and were astounded by it, as a feat of artistry and engineering. I definitely recommend visiting if at all possible, and also walking along the oceanfront, to the right as you exit the mosque after the tour. Thank you to Said, who saved us by getting us into the last guided tour. We are so grateful to him. And thank you to Moses, our knowledgeable and was guide in the mosque.
