For our second day in beautiful Morocco, our amazing and super sweet tour guide, Hassan
( hi Hassan! we miss you!), took us on a nice tour of Casablanca stopping first to have breakfast: croissants, coffee, eggs, and orange juice.
After breakfast, we had planned to visit The Hassan II Mosque,
which is a chef d’oeuvre of the Arab-Islamic architecture and it’s one of the greatest achievements of the twentieth century, at 2pm. The Hassan II Mosque is a place that houses tradition and Modernism; it’s a haven of peace in which during one visit, all celestial religions meet.
As we walked up to the mosque, it gave me chills to be surrounded by the beautiful arches and architectural edifices surrounding us. As we approached the entrance, we had to take off our shoes and although it wasn’t mandatory to cover our head, we did anyway to show our respects.
The breathtaking interior of the mosque was something out of a fairtytale; everything was so detailed and beautiful that it made you sit there for hours and appreciate the amount of work people put into building the Mosque. We got a tour of the prayer hall, which accommodates 25,000 worshippers and it’s equipped with a removable roof.
It was truly a remarkable experience that I won’t forget.
I wore this to visit the Mosque, I wanted to be covered up and be comfortable since we walked a lot that day! The photos were taken outside the Mosque, as it was a wide open space with a beautiful backdrop.
ps: I’m posting my outfit photos first before I post photos of the city, Mosque, markets, fashion week, etc! So stay tuned for those random posts!
