The best material was used to build this mausoleum. However, the design came from a Vietnamese architect! Inside, there is a ceiling covered with cedar. Gold and precious... More

So, i would recommend a 30 minute visit. Then, we went for a walk next door to the mausoleum on the grounds of the unfinished mosque. The view... More

A superb place to visit if you appreciate the style and architecture of Morocco. Visits are well planned and guided tours are especially worth it for the local information you receive. A must see part of Rabat.

It is buy the unfinished mosque so you can see both this attraction and the unfinished mosque in one day. You can take pictures with guards by the tomb. Also, there are guards on horse back you can also take pictures with.

It is both a tomb and... More

The inside ceiling of the mausoleum is quite spectacular, as are the mosaics. It's worth a visit but you won't spend that long here, maximum an hour.
