The mausoleum is truly majestic. Its architecture is carefully designed and its decorations are subtle with great attention to details. A must see if one is in Rabat.

Beginning in the plaza outside the mausoleum this place feels majestic. Elegant and soaring architecture, marbled spaces, fascinating history. And then you step inside. The mausoleum, guarded by special sentries, is a fantasy of intricate tile-work, architectural wonders, and glorious decor. Best to come with a guide, as there's no real information about the place available.

It's free.... and beautifully constructed. Great location for photographs. I was amazed people could take pictures inside the mausoleum. Obviously respect needs to be shown - but very impressive place.

This place is beautiful! The buildings are impressive and seeing the base of all those pillars is amazing and makes for great photos. And it's free!

Mausoleum was very detailed and a nice place for a quick stop. Views were really nice. Two hours is plenty of time to visit.

The Mausoleum of Mohammad V is a beautiful building. Great decorations and ornaments. The grave can be seen from the balustrade, the tomb is located one floor lower. A short visit should be part of a trip of Rabat, and make sure you understand the importance of King Mohammad V for Marokko to appreciate this monument even better.

Before entering the Hassan Tower and the Mausoleum you are welcomed by the two guards on their horses at the entrance. The building is considered an architectural masterpiece and I must admit I liked it very much. I also enjoyed the sense of peacefulness given by the wide space.

Hassan Tower and Mausoleum of Mohammed V: these two are adjacent to each other and often covered together. One is a grandiose attempt (never finished) to build the biggest mosque in the world, the other a vain memorial to a man who by accident of history was born to the right family, at the right time and place. The Mausoleum... More
