Hassan ll Mosque, Casablanca - Kit Lee

It’s beautiful isn’t it?  This was my first visit to a mosque in Arab world, the stunning Hassan ll Mosque in Casablanca.  The Hassan ll Mosque is known to be one of the most beautiful and the largest mosque in Morocco and Africa, and the 7th largest in the world.  It was designed by Michel Pinseau and built by Bouygues, the construction lasted 6 years which involved 35,000 volunteered workers and 6,000 traditional Moroccan artisans to create the embellished interior and exterior to the finest finish, it’s definitely world class.  My favourite tour was the ablution hall located in the basement, it’s where Muslims perform a cleansing ritual before entering the mosque for prayer.  It’s a worth a visit and the experience the true marvel of Moroccan craftsmanship.

    Your photos came out so well, Kit! They’re absolutely stunning (like everything else on your blog…wow, wow, wow).

    Jesse and I are back in the UK for a little while in October. We hope we’ll be able to catch you for a coffee and/or a tagine in London town.
