Photographer's Note

My third photo from Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, taken inside the huge colonnade surrounding the mosque. I was fascinated by the size of the monument, and every architectural detail of it. Then i realized some locals passing by, and this one is one of the many photos with the locals therein, while i preferred to share this one, because the location of the lady is the best to emphasize the depth and size of the structure. People are definitely dwarved by the huge marblework...

The Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca is the 7th largest mosque in the world. Its minaret is the world's tallest at 210 metres. It is almost brand new, completed in 1993. The mosque stands on Atlantic Ocean coast, the oceanic waves literally hitting its walls. A maximum of 105,000 worshippers can gather together for prayer: 25,000 inside the mosque hall and another 80,000 on the mosque's outside grounds.
