The Hassan II mosque in Casablanca
Morocco

La mosquée Hassan II (arabe : مسجد الحسن الثاني) est située à Casablanca au Maroc. Érigée en partie sur la mer, la mosquée Hassan II est un complexe religieux et culturel, aménagé sur neuf hectares et comporte une salle de prières, une salle d'ablutions, des bains, une école coranique (medersa), une bibliothèque et un musée. La mosquée peut accueillir 105 000 fidèles et la salle de prières 25 000 fidèles.

La mosquée Hassan II possède un minaret d'une hauteur de 200 m, ce qui est en fait l'édifice religieux le plus haut du monde. Des artisans recrutés dans toutes les villes du royaume avaient sculpté 53 000 m² de bois et peint plus de 10 000 m² de zellige (céramiques) pour la mosquée Hassan II.

    More About Africa

    Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
