Great maloutim 2013-02-11 0:41

Hi Danos,
Lovely POV of this "never ending", "never ended" mosque. It's like a play on words for such a large edifice that never ends and that was never completed after the death of the sultan Yacoub el-Mansour in the 12th century, I believe, and then was damaged by an earthquake in the 18th century.
The unfinished minaret, the Hassan Tower overlooks this column forest with all its majesty.
Are you going to show us the mausoleum in one of your next posts too ?
Thanks for sharing these interesting marks of Moroccan history and culture.
Kind regards.
Marie-louise.
