A qubba (also written koubba etc.) is an Arabic word for tomb, especially Muslim domed mausoleums or just the dome of a tomb, or any type of building with a dome, such as the Dome of the Rock (Qubbat al-Sachra). Originally it meant a tent of hides.
It is also used more generally for tomb-sites, if they are places of pilgrimage.
