This courtyard just outside the mausoleum of former King Mohammed V in Rabat, Morocco is another fine example of beautiful architecture found throughout many parts of the country. Pity about the air conditioning units along the wall behind the fountain. Knowing their climate, this is probably a concession to the vagaries of challenging temperatures.
Below I’ve included several close-up photos of details on the wall at the rear of the courtyard.
The inside of the mausoleum of Mohammed V in Rabat, Morocco was one of the many magnificent buildings we visited on our tour of the country. From the outside it looks like many other beautiful buildings, but once inside the true beauty of this monument can be fully appreciated, as shown in today’s photos.
The photo above shows the amazing artwork in the domed ceiling. The first one below shows details of the mosaics on the walls. The final two photos today show the detail of the fountain in the courtyard just outside.
From the outside the mausoleum of Mohammed V in Rabat, Morocco is another beautiful building – there is no shortage of beautiful architecture in these great cities.
Once you move inside however, the level of beauty rises to another level entirely. It is magnificent. Words do not do it justice, so I’ll let my camera do the talking.
While we were visiting the mausoleum of Mohammed V in Rabat, Morocco, I saw these women in traditional Moroccan dress. They were also visiting this special site.
During our visit to Rabat in Morocco we spent a short time visiting the Mausoleum of Mohammed V. This is one of many magnificent buildings we saw during our visit. I particularly liked the guards on duty, like the one in the entrance shown in the photo above, and those on horses shown below.
In the coming days I will show more photos of the mausoleum, including some of the mosaic artistry and even photos taken inside this beautiful building.
