Casablanca and Marrakech: The soul of Morocco
Besides it’s got a huge Hamam, a shower area, although it’s just there you can’t use it. The courtyard of the mosque can accommodate more than 90,000 worshippers which makes it a very big assembly of people. Besides, being on the Atlantic Ocean would take a toll on the mosques architecture because of salinity and other weather induced extremities but they have been taken very good care because of the material used. The pillars of the mosque have been coated with egg yolk!! That was news to me didn’t know egg yolk is a construction material.
Anyways I think I still won’t be able to explain this architectural gem – a must see for any tourist.
