The Hassan II mosque in Casablanca is in the Top 10 of the most beautiful in the world, produced by Hola magazine.
“There are many mosques in the world, but the ones we show you are unique and not reproducible, in terms of their architecture, their size, their history. We have traveled from Jerusalem to Abu Dhabi, from Istanbul to Morocco in search of those spaces of communion and spirituality of the Islamic religion that cause astonishment to those who contemplate them,” the magazine explains.
The Hassan II Mosque occupies the seventh place in this ranking, behind the Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba (Spain), the Crystal Mosque in Malaysia, the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, the Badshahi Mosque in Pakistan, the Sheikh Mosque in Abu Dhabi and the blue mosque in turkey.
The Imam Mosque and the Shah Cheragh Mosque in Iran and the Hagia Sophia Mosque in Istanbul close the rankings, Diario de Cordoba reports. The Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba, number 1 in the ranking, “was built as a temple of Islamic worship – commissioned by Abd al-Rahman Iᵉʳ – and then became a Christian cathedral”, details the magazine.
