Overview of Almoravid Qubba

The Almoravid Qubba

The Almoravid Qubba was built in the 12th century by the Almoravid dynasty, which ruled most of Morocco and some parts of Spain. The Qubba is a square building twelve meters high with a dome-shaped roof adorned with intricate geometric patterns and calligraphy. It is thought to have been used as a prayer room for the rulers of the Almoravids.
