Qubba Fatima Zohra - Marrakech

The beautiful Tomb of Fatima Zohra
By the Koutobia Mosque you will see a small, white building. It is the 400 year old Qubba or mausoleum of the famous Fatima Zohra. 
The beautiful pearl-white domed tomb, topped by a cupola, was built in the 17th-century. It is the resting place of Fatima Zohra, the daughter of a religious leader.

It is said that Fatima Zohra had the ability to transform into a white dove at night and was a gifted fortune teller. She is still highly revered by Moroccan women, and they still dedicate their children to her, believing that her blessing will protect them.
