Almoravid Koubba

  Historical

The oldest building in Marrakech dating back to the 12th century, Almoravid Koubba is the only surviving Almoravid (Berber Dynasty) building in good condition. It is believed to have been used for ablutions before prayers, with hydraulic attachments and a cistern exemplifying the qanat drainage system. The architecture of the Koubba reflects traditional Moroccan sensibilities, with arched ribs on the exterior of the dome and octagonal star inside, and motifs of floral patterns with palms, pine cones, and acanthus leaves filling the interiors. The varied and distinct window shapes add an interesting element to the entire look of the building.
