Very nice place in Rabat

There are not many places to visit in Rabat so and this place is one of the few must seen if you are there. The architecture and the costumes of the national guards are amazing.

A very ornate and interesting place to visit. A good rainy day activity. Its still operating with someone there reading quietly from the Koran every day.

A stunning site to see but aside from the Mausoleum, everything else is closed for renovation. Outside, one can see the guards on their horses stationed at each entry way. Beautiful views of Rabat on each side of the area.

We were there during the prayer so we couldn't go inside it But the architecture is wonderful . Going out you'll see the near town Salle and the new high ways

This is obviously a favorite stop for tourists - while it was interesting to see the mausoleum, it is a quick visit place. Most of your time can be spent walking around the area, and observing the horses and guards, and other visitors. Good opportunity for photos.

The Mausoleum is quite beautiful in its internal tile, wood and plaster work and other decoration and it was obviously an important site for locals as well as travellers.

Why did this Moroccan monarch think that people would want to stare at his opulent grave after his death? Money would have been better spent on a museum.

Must see when in Rabat. 2 kings buried there. Place is gorgeous to see. The soldiers in full regalia and horses are a good picture excuse.

We visited the incredibly ornate and well guarded Mausoleum of the well loved leader Mohammed V in our afternoon in Rabat. The plaza of the unfinished tower was dramatic with dressed guards and horses at sentry. It was wonderful to listen to the Imam recite verses in the insular building of the mausoleum. This is an important and respectful place... More

If you're going to make a trip to Rabat it's a must see. Simple. There's not much to do or see in Rabat but this is one of few. Easy 15 minute walk from The train. I would not go out of your way to see it if not already planning to go to Rabat.
