Hassan II Mosque

The third largest mosque in the world is in Casablanca, Morocco. We had the chance to visit this beautiful religious building and tour inside. It’s massive and absolutely the most awe-inspiring place I have ever stepped foot in. Including outdoor spaces, over 100,000 people can pray here at once, and the prayer room has a roof that opens up to the sky. There are multiple washing stations and hammams in the building for everyone to cleanse themselves before prayer. These photos don’t capture the sheer size and majesty of this place, honestly. I can’t put into words how amazing going to this mosque was… the only mosques larger are in Mecca and Medina. It’s a sight.
