The Mausoleum of Mohammed V (Arabic: ضريح محمد الخامس) is a mausoleum located on the opposite side of the Hassan Tower, on the Yacoub al-Mansour esplanade in Rabat, Morocco. It contains the tombs of the Moroccan king and his two sons, late King Hassan II and Prince Abdallah. The building is considered a masterpiece of modern Alaouite dynasty architecture, with its white silhouette, topped by a typical green tiled roof, green being the colour of Islam. A reader of the Quran is often present, having his assigned seat. Its construction was completed in 1971. Hassan II was buried there following his death in 1999.
