We visited Mausoleum during our one day visit to Rabat. The architecture is amazing and it is placed on a nice hilly area in the middle of Rabat. The building from inside is really nice and features Morrocan craft work.We felt that it was worth the visit.

however it's not the most stunning thing to see while you are in Morocco the Mausoleum of Mohammed V is a well known tourist magnet and a definite must-see while you are visiting Rabat. The extremely white marble used to build the mausoleum is Carera Marble coming from the old Roman city ruins of the site of Volubilis (28 kms... More

It is a very special and unique place. It holds unfinished columns of ancient mosque and recently built Mausoleum. The Mausoleum is the finest example of extraordinary craft of Moroccan craftsmen. Mosaics are especially finest and worth seeing. The whole please seems to be very peaceful, although sometimes crowded. From the top of the staircase spreads stunning view towards Kasba... More

The sights in Rabat, except for the Kasbah and Chellah, are not must does, however, the mausoleum is worth seeing in Rabat. It has some beautiful elements but is also stark in places. As others have said, the horse guards are interesting and good natured about having their photos taken.

The tile work was just incredible and the guards outside the building are dressed quite handsomely in royal garb. When you would get ready to take their pictures, they would stand up straighter and look very smart. We spent less than 30 minutes looking at the Hassan Tower and the Mausoleum.

Beautifully designed with many traditional Moroccan details with a modern twist. Great views over the Hassan Tower and the sea.

Lovely mosaics; outside is covered with carrara marble. Short visit is sufficient for most tourists.

Our tour group coach passed through shanty areas and then amazingly we were at this Mausoleum with all its extravagance. Look not just at the Mausoleum but also the mosque ruins. There is beauty in both. The guards stand passively and put up with tourists taking endless photos. After I thanked a young guard, I almost fell over when he... More
