A qubba (Arabic: قُبَّة‎) pl. قُبَّات qubbāt), also spelled ḳubba, kubbet and koubba, is an Arabic term for tomb structures, particularly Islamic domed shrines.

It originally was used to mean a tent of hides,[2] but it may also be used generally for tomb sites if they are places of pilgrimage.[3] The word is also used for domes atop the mausoleums or in Islamic medieval architecture.[4] A well-known example is the Dome of the Rock, known in Arabic as "Qubba al-Sakhrah" (Arabic: قُبَّةُ ٱلْصَّخْرَة‎, romanizedQubbatu 'ṣ-Ṣakhrah).
