Hassan Tower is the minaret of an incomplete mosque in Rabat, Morocco. Its construction was ordered in 1195 AD by king Yacub al-Mansour who had dreamt of constructing the largest minaret and the mosque in the world. However, the king died four years later and the construction of the mosque and its minaret were halted forever. The mosque was incomplete, and the tower was constructed to a height of 140 feet against that intended at 260 feet - and the same is standing under the sun since 1199 AD. The tower is made of red sandstone, and stands next to the remains of the mosque and a Mausoleum of Mohammed V and his two sons.
