According to the report, the Hassan II Grand Mosque, in reference with late King of Morocco Hassan II, won the seventh spot out of twenty-five mosques. This is due to the fact that the grand mosque is the home of the world’s tallest minaret measured 210 meters.

The Hassan II Grand Mosque is the world’s third largest mosque; it is the only establishment in Morocco where non-Muslims are welcome to enter. It is located on the seafront in Casablanca, and the ocean floor is visible through the glass floor in the hall.

The Koutoubia Mosque in Marrakech made it to the 25th spot. The mosque, which is constructed next to Djemaa El-Fna Square in the center of the Red City, possesses one of the most complex and remarkably ornamented minarets.
