About this spot

This is the largest mosque in Morocco, the second largest in Africa, and the 7th largest in the world. Its minaret is the world's 2nd tallest minaret at 210 metres (689 ft). It is one of only two mosques in the country open to non-Muslims.

In 1980 King Hassan II said that he wanted ‘to build this mosque on the water, because God’s throne was on water. Therefore the faithful who go there to pray, to praise the creator on firm soil, can contemplate God’s sky and ocean’. This is the reason for its location on the Atlantic Ocean, which can actually be seen through the glass floor inside.

This amazing mosque is a must visit for photographers travelling to Morocco.
