I thought this had to be Rabat's most important historical and cultural site. It's so ornate and protected by many colourful guards, who take great honour and pride guarding over one of Morocco's greatest leaders. It's part of Hasan Tower, so they are both side by side. We spend a lot of time there just sitting and admiring the work... More

This mausoleum is quite an impressive structure. The ornate carving is all handcrafted. The carved and painted wood ceiling dome is beautiful. There are intricate mosaics, marble and ornate glass chandeliers. That the public can just walk into this mausoleum is quite surprising. It is worth walking into and around this structure when you are visiting the Hassan tower outside.

The Mausoleum of Mohammed V is a historical architectural object located in Rabat, Morocco. It contains the tombs of the Moroccan king and his two sons . Soldiers ( also on horses ) in national Moroccan uniforms are adding the charm and dignity to this really worth seeing place.

This beautiful building is definitely worth a visit. The tile work is some of the most beautiful I saw in Morocco.

The mausoleum is very impressive. The entry staircase is beautiful. The inside is very pretty with red and gold decor. The outside with its columns is very deliberate.

great for site seeing ... Try to avoid the crowds by visiting the mausoleum in the morning , not the cleanest place don't be surprised if it is not up to par.

This was a pretty site and worth stopping at as part of the tour. It is great for Morocco. The guards add a special touch and make for some good pictures. I really can't say it is anything fantastic. But then nothing in Morocco comes even close to the beauty and magnificence of places like Italy and Europe.
