One of the most striking features of this amazing mosque is an automated sliding roof that opens mainly on special occasions to the heavens. In this way the devoted of Casablanca can in fact think about God's sky and sea as per Hassan's wishes. The style of the Hassan II Mosque shows solid Moorish impacts, inferring the Alhambra and Mezquita in Spain. Horseshoe curves win both outside and in, and the dividers and segments of the inner part are gently cut in a mixed bag of complex examples. The beauty of this mosque can be easily relished by taking a guided tour of the mosque.
