Casablanca, Hassan II Mosque tour times

Jump to last reply

Sallam 'lekum and greetings fellow travelers,

The tour times for Casablanca's Hassan II Mosque were recently changed, with the slightly complicated schedule now:

Time zone UTC (i.e. not during daylight saving)
Tours depart daily at 9:00am, 10:00am, 11:00am, 12:00pm, 2:00pm, 3:00pm

Time zone UTC+1 (i.e. during daylight saving which commences at 2:00am on the last Sunday of March until 3:00am on the last Sunday of October, except during Ramadan when the time zone reverts back to UTC)
Tours depart daily at 9:00am, 10:00am, 11:00am, 12:00pm, 3:00pm, 4:00pm

Ramadan (dates change every year according to the lunar calendar)
Tours depart daily at 9:00am, 10:00am, 11:00am

The cost is still 120dh, with payment accepted by cash or credit card. The below-ground ticket counter is located at the southern end of the mosque, where there are also clean toilets available. Footwear is to be taken off once you enter the mosque with your guide (plastic bags are provided) and respectful dress is required, but nothing too serious (cover your shoulders and knees). Photography (including flash) is allowed, while 'professional' videography is not.

The tour takes around 45 minutes and is the only manner in which non-Muslims are allowed to enter the mosque.

Happy travels,

Darren Humphrys
