Hassan Tower or Tour Hassan (Arabic: صومعة حسان‎) is the minaret of an incomplete mosque in RabatMorocco.[1] Begun in 1195, the tower was intended to be the largest minaret in the world along with the mosque, also intended to be the world's largest. In 1199, Sultan Yacoub al-Mansour died and construction on the mosque stopped. The tower only reached 44 m (140 ft), about half of its intended 86 m (260 ft) height. The rest of the mosque was also left incomplete, with only the beginnings of several walls and 200 columns being constructed. The tower, made of red sandstone,[2] along with the remains of the mosque and the modern Mausoleum of Mohammed V, forms an important historical and tourist complex in Rabat.

Instead of stairs, the tower is ascended by ramps. The minaret's ramps would have allowed the muezzin to ride a horse to the top of the tower to issue the call to prayer.


From the tower, you can observe the beautiful panoramic view of marina bouregreg in medina of rabat. this is a newly renovated place which gives an additional life to this city.. The tower ( Le tour Hassan ) is one of rabat morocco´s top tourist destination. a bunch of foreigners and locals come and visit the place everyday...obviously yours truly is one them...:-). until next time guys.. have fun and stay happy... life is a journey.

magandang araw po sa inyong lahat...:-)

Night photography is a little bit tricky, a lot of things you need to put into consider, like how secure is the vicinity. is there any chances that we can come up in case of trouble?. this things should be consider to be more secure specialy if you are on a solo flight at night.

most of the time i walk alone, find something on the street... make those ordinary things that i saw to be my subject.

these are few sample of images that i took last sat. night march 10, 2012. a long and old overpass crossing one of rabat city´s biggest public hospital IBN ZINA.

i went here at around 8pm and the place was already almost empty, very scary isn´t it? i have camera, 2 lenses, tripod and some accessories with me... luckily one guard approached me and advised me to leave the area within an hour or else i will be get entangled with those crazy ass guys roaming around to find their victims and the night is their best playground...
