Hassan II Mosque in Morocco
Name: Hassan II Mosque
City: Casablanca Morocco
Year: 1986
Descriptions:

Hassan II Mosque_seaside in MoroccoOne of the main attractions of Mosque Hassan II, the 7th largest mosque in the world. Its minaret is the world's tallest at 210 m (689 ft) It stands on a promontory looking out to the Atlantic. A total of 105,000 worshippers can gather for prayer at the mosque simultaneously, 25,000 inside the mosque and another 80,000 on the mosque's ground outside.

Besides being so huge, it is also having unique in that it is built so that part of it hangs over the Atlantic Ocean, and there is a room with a glass floor so that we can look down and see the water below you.

Casablanca's major highlights is undoubtedly the massive Mosquee Hassan II, on a rocky promontory a couple of kilometres from the centre of the city. It actually appears a lot closer, because it is hard to gauge the scale of the building from far away, while the road to get there goes on and on and on. Sources can't agree on whether it is the largest mosque after Mecca (I doubt it), the largest in Africa (possible) or just the largest in Morocco but it is enormous, and unusually for Moroccan Islamic monuments, non-Muslims are allowed inside, on special guided tours.

Work on the mosque was commenced on 12 July 1986, and was intended to be completed for the 60th birthday of the former Moroccan king, Hassan II, in 1989. However, the building was not inaugurated until 30 August 1993. During the most intense period of construction, 1400 men worked during the day and another 1100 during the night. 10,000 artists and craftsmen participated in building the mosque.

Descriptions:

Koutoubia mosque in Marrakech MoroccoThis moque located near the Djemaa el Fna, the Koutoubia Mosque is the largest & famousmosque in Marrakesh.basically It is famed especially for its magnificent minaret, the oldest of the three great Almohad minarets remaining in the world.

Construction on the Koutoubia mosque began shortly after the Almohad conquest of Marrakesh, around 1150. Built on the site of an 11th-century Almoravid mosque, it was completed during the reign of Sultan Yacoub el Mansour (1184-99). Its name comes from the Arabic for "book" (koutoub), because there was originally a book market nearby.
What to See

The highlight of the Koutoubia mosque is the beautiful minaret. Rising almost 70m, it dominates the Djemaa el Fna square and can be seen from much of the city.

The beutiful design of the Koutoubia minaret was highly influential on later towers (notably the Hassan Tower in Rabat and the beautiful La Giralda in Seville) and on Moroccan architecture in general. The wide band of ceramic tiles at the top, the pointed battlements (merlons), the alternate patterning on each side, and various other decorative motifs can all be seen on various buildings across the country.

The minaret is topped with copper balls of decreasing size, a traditional design in Morocco. There are usually only three orbs; legend has it the fourth was a gifted from the wife of Saadian ruler Yacoub el Mansour, as penance for breaking her fast for three hours during Ramadan.
