Hassan II Mosque

The architecture of the Hassan II Mosque is as impressive as any European cathedral. It was opened in 1993 and is located direct on the Atlantic coast. It is the second largest religious buildings in the Arabic world after Mecca with a space of 25.000 worshippers inside and 80.000 outside. The minaret has a height of 210m and the top is enlightened in the night. Designed by French architect Michel Pinseau, you could see the answer of the Koranic phrase "the throne of God lies on the water." Part of floor of this facility is glass so worshippers can kneel directly over the sea. The roof of the mosque could be opened during prayers when it gets too hot.
