Create an itinerary including Mausoleum of Mohammad V
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. Make Mausoleum of Mohammad V a centerpiece of your Rabat vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Rabat trip itinerary planning site.

  • This is a stunning place, the royal guards with horses at the entrances is very impressive. The location atop the hill with views across the street of the theatre and Kasbah.

  • Closed currently, but very nice place to take photos outside. The gate are just beautiful!
  • Amazing architecture and well kept sadly we could not enter inside due to the restrictions of COVID.It’s a must visit site during your visit in Rabat.The Royal Guard is something which you can watch and click pics.
  • This is next to the site of the hassan tower. The entry was closed at the time of our visit. Looks amazing from the outside. Must be very beautiful inside I presume.
  • Great place to visit and take photos. One of the few places you are allowed to the photos of guards.
  • The square with the mausoleum and the Hassantower is really beautiful. Unfortunately the mausoleum was closed. I don’t know what the opening times are.
