Hassan Ii Mosque - Review
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
I‘d heard from locals that every Moroccan is obligatory to financially support the Mosque construction. Certainly the result is great, giving powerful impression to visitors. Beautiful and sacred whitening facades, interior finishing is overall covered with intriguing floral patterns, no matter ceiling, floors or walls and doors... rather busy, but working harmony by one another! Anyway, interesting to learn and see such an art work.
Beautiful mosque! I have visited many mosque and probably, this is one of the most impressive and iconic. The size of the mosque is impressive and the Moroccan style and materials looks beautiful. Location-wise, it’s nice as it’s on the shore of Atlantic with sweeping view of the open ocean and the city. Although it’s quite close to the old medina, there is however, not much to see in this area of the city. There’s also not many hotels and restaurants in the area for intrepid tourists to stay/hang out into.
Truly monumental. Gargantuan. Worth a look indeed. Other reviews will tell you out the tour guides. Ours was more worth listening to than I expected. But... There was no sense of the holy. Sense of the divine. Sure, crowds in churches, mosques, temples inhibit this. But the seize of the place seemed to inhibit it too. Perhaps that it was tourists only time¿ If there had been people praying it would have been better, eh.
Breathtaking and a must see when visiting Casablanca. The architecture and the interior of the mosque is beautiful. Hassan II mosque is also one of the few in the world that allows people of other religions to visit. I would highly recommend the guided tour.
Amazing architecture, and the location right on the water front really adds to the impressiveness. It’s MAD120 for the guided tour, but totally worth it if you’re in Casablanca. This may be the only mosque in Morocco which allows non-Muslims to visit inside. Wear socks and be prepared to take off your shoes. It’s an active place of worship so try to be respectful, it’s a privilege to see the inside!
