If you are in Rabat I definitely recommend seeing this location, the building itself is very nice. I gave it an average rating only because there is really not much there

Very nice with some great photo opportunities - photography is allowed inside. The white Italian marble building, with Roman columns and intricate tile-work, has a burial vault (tomb) built underneath. It was built in memory of Mohammed V, the father of Moroccan independence.

The mausoleum and it's surrounding grounds are both peaceful and spectacular while being respectful at the same time. The mosaic tiles outside and inside the building are a great example of this Moroccan craftsmanship at some of its finest, and the mausoleum itself is tasteful. The ceremonial guards and their horses are a nice touch to complete the overall feeling.

This is not a long visit but it will be an impressive visit. It is clean and there is a viewing area from the floor you enter on looking down to the casket. Pictures are permitted but be sure to ask an English speaking guard / staff to describe not only what you are looking at both inside but also... More

The setting is impressive - across the plaza from the Unfinished Minaret. Interior is reflective of Hassan II's approach to construction - a bit over the top.
