The Afghan mosque has been constant for over a century. Is it a symbol, or a real building?

Here is an Algerian coin on which the mosque is worked into the design: 50 centimes 1400, KM 111

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Good one, Miner! I am no fan of non-circulating "coins", but I like the design, capturing the spirit of the place with its intricate decorations and the artfully conceived moons.

Morocco 5 dirhams 2011
Great Mosque of Hassan II - Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco's largest mosque and one of the largest in the world. The building is located on the Atlantic coast, which offers views of a giant glass hall. The height of the minaret is only 210 meters.
Half of the area of ​​the mosque is located over the Atlantic Ocean and has a glass floor, through which the water is clear. According to the chief architect - Pince Michel, was inspired by the words of the Qur'an: "Allah's throne is on the water." This idea he used in the design of buildings. Indeed, the building of the mosque conceived in such a way that at high tide at the worshipers gave the impression that the mosque is floating on the waves like a ship. This effect increases with increasing wave heights.
