Between Casablanca and the deep blue sea
One of the ten largest Islamic mosques in the world is named after the longtime king of Morocco, Hassan II. It was completed several years before his death in 1999.
Its minaret is taller than any other (at 689 feet it would dwarf the Washington Monument's 555).
[The largest mosque is in Mecca. Muhammad -- who died in 632 -- is buried a couple hundred miles north in the one at Medina].
