Mausoleum of Mohammad V, Rabat

Landmark · Tourist Spot
Visit the final resting place of a Moroccan king and his two royal sons at Mausoleum of Mohammad V, a national landmark of royal tombs and a mosque. Commissioned in 1962 to honor the life of Mohammed V, a ruler best remembered for his efforts in bringing independence to the country, the mausoleum was completed in 1971. Today, it also contains the tombs of King Hassan II and Prince Abdallah, Mohammed's two sons. The carved white exterior exudes an atmosphere of calm, carried on inside by the cool marble and granite interior, where a reader of the Quran sits reciting passages throughout the day.

  • Apart from it’s obvious aesthetically pleasing architecture, the other part of this mosque that I loved was that buses of school children visit. Instantly, a place of respect and wonder is transformed by excited kids who refuse to observe the code of silence. The ‘must do’ at the mausoleum is to look up at the beautifully intricate and gilded domed ceiling above - outstanding
  • One of many tourist stops in Morocco. This was on the way to Fes from the Casablanca Airport. It was great to get out of the car and stretch our legs. They had many beautiful things to see and look at. You will take many pictures so make sure to have enough space!
  • Not just beautiful but amazingly beautiful ​. An absolute must to see on your list of places to visit. There is a relaxing feeling when you are going through this magnificent place and the art in every corner of the mausoleum.
