About Hassan Ii Mosque, Casablanca
In the 1980’s, the city of Casablanca was not as replete with historical monuments as it is today. Then the king of Morocco decided this needs to be changed and hired a French architect and some 6000 labourers to build the 7th largest mosque of the world and the largest of the country. With a capacity to accommodate over 25,000 worshippers within the walls of the mosque and 80,000 outside, the minaret of the mosque stands tall 690 feet from the ground. On top of this minaret, shines a light in the direct of Mecca. The best way to get around the mosque is to opt for the hour long guided tour.

Hassan Ii Mosque, Casablanca Reviews - Write a Review
Beautiful place. The location of the mosque is very nice and peaceful. It makes one feel connected to god. The architecture and the colours used are very nice and gives a very royal look. I loved this place and highly recommend everyone to visit it in Casablanca.
BEAUTIFUL. Everything in Casablanca was mediocre. The only thing worth it was this. It is absolutely beautiful. We couldn't go inside because we are not Muslim and they changed the tour guide times on us last minute, but it's a beautiful place to people watch and be inspired by the architecture, shadows and sense of community.
Okay, we were unlucky with this mosque twice: first, was raining and we missed the time; second, it was Mohammad’s birthday and the mosque is closed. However, after a ceremony the doors were open so we had a peek without entering the mosque. It was grand! The 210m minaret is also a landmark of Casablanca. They do guided tours but you always have to check the time and if it’s a holiday. DH120 is the entrance. The photo of the mosque facing the sea was taken from a lighthouse. As far as I know, it’s not normal that everyone can just enter the lighthouse but this one does as long as Dirham talks. They will always ask for DH50/person but I told them that I’m just a student and they asked for DH25. It’s a functioning lighthouse so I hope there would be no naughty one to touch any controls.
An impressive site. Well worth a visit. The guide was good she did not rush and was happy to answer questions. Stick to the rules!
Beautiful, spectacular mosque. It was finished 10 years ago! works from artisans from all regions of Morocco. And the most special thing is that everyone is allowed to visit at designated times, with guides provided by them.
