  • La Qubba is the only vestige of Koubba art left in Marrakech. Recently restored, it is barely a small square building whose main interest lies in observing the interior of its dome. The problem is that, with the rise in prices of tickets to the sites of Marrakech, it is necessary to consider whether to spend the 60 Dh that now costs the entrance.

  • The Almoravid koubba in Marrakech, Morocco. The Almoravid Koubba (or Koubba Ba'adiyin/Barudiyin) is a small monument in Marrakech, Morocco. Dating to the 12th century, it was erected by the Almoravid dynasty. At the entrance and at the top of the prayer room is the inscription: I was created for science and prayer, by the prince of the believers, descendant of the prophet, Abdallah, most glorious of all Caliphs. Pray for him when you enter the door, so that you may fulfill your highest hopes. The inscription refers to the Abbasid Caliph of Baghdad, and gives hommage to Ali ibn Yusuf, the patron of the building.
