The Mosque is a very impressive building, with the tallest minaret tower in the world Our Guide took us inside the main building, observing the protocols regarding dress/footwear The prayer area was vast,...

Unlike other countries (Turkey comes to mind) non-Muslims are not welcome in Moroccan mosques. The exception is Hassan II mosque, which provides guided tours for non-believers. This mosque is very Moroccan in style and completely unlike those I have saw in Turkey. You'll get to see inside the prayer hall, the (sadly unused) hammam and the hall of ablutions. It's... More

A must see in Casablanca. Recommend to go there for sunset. Nice view over the Corniche. Can be easily combined with a visit in the Medina which is walking distance.

This is a very impressive building. It sits over water and has the world's tallest minaret. The building itself is quite beautiful with Moroccan designs. It is also possible to visit the mosque which is quite unusual in itself and worth the time. If you are in Casablanca this is one stop that you will want to make.

It's big.... 3rd largest in the world and the only Mosque in Morocco to non Muslims. Only about 20 years old and built over the water. I think all groups are required to have a tour guide and they are very excited to show you this Mosque. I think it has room to accomodate up to 80,000 for worship. Interesting... More

The mosque is a beautiful and inspiring place. We visited on a day trip we took to Casablanca from Marrakech. Beware it's near a beach where some of the local characters are quite rough. We had a police officer kindly tell us not to go in for our own safety.

This was a unique experience as this is one of the two mosuqes I think open to public. The architecture was wonderful; the courtyard amazing and most of all the cleanliness of the place is beyond belief for accommodating so many worshippers. The guide was quite fluent and we thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
