The King Hassan II Mosque
The third largest of its kind in the world, the King Hassan II Mosque was designed by French architect Michel Pinseau. Perched on the edge of the city of Casablanca, this picturesque structure looks out over the Atlantic Ocean and features the world's tallest minaret, towering at 689 feet (210m). Almost half of this mosque lies on the Atlantic, which can be seen through a gigantic glass floor. This feature was inspired by a verse in the Qur'an - 'the throne of God was built on water'. The mosque can accommodate over 100,000 worshippers.
