The Hassan II Mosque, located in Casablanca, is the largest mosque in Morocco and the third largest mosque in the world after the Masjid al-Haram of Mecca and the Al-Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina. It stands on a promontory looking out to the Atlantic Ocean and can accommodate 25,000 worshippers; 80,000 additional worshippers can be accommodated in the mosque's adjoining grounds. Seen here is the mosque's minaret which is the world's tallest at 210m.
