Hassan II Mosque Morocco Photographs

These are more photographs of the Hassan II Mosque in Morocco. I visited this mosque on my last day in Morocco, and watched the sun set over the ocean there. It was a nice goodbye to that country.

Photo of lovers resting on a fountain at Hassan II Mosque. I can only imagine they were wooing each other with Rumi poems as they secretly met at the mosque.

Photo of a muslim woman sitting at Hassan II mosque. The mosaic tile work at this mosque is amazing. All of the building materials for this mosque came from Morocco, except for a few pieces of marble that came from Italy.
