About Mausoleum of Mohammed V

The Mausoleum of Mohammed V in Rabat is the grand tomb of one of Morocco’s kings and his two sons. Mohammed V was the sultan of Morocco for two periods – 1927 to 1953 and 1957 to 1961. In between these times he was exiled (1953-55), although he is now remembered for his contribution to the attainment of Morocco’s independence.

Commissioned by King Hassan II in 1962 and completed in 1971, the Mausoleum of Mohammed V is a white building crowned with green tiles. Inside, the mausoleum is lavishly decorated and adorned with a wealth of traditional artwork.

Together with its namesake, the Mausoleum of Mohammed V is also the final resting place of King Hassan II and Prince Abdallah, his two sons.
