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.
