In 1557, the Royal Necropolis belonging to the Saadian family was created after the death and burial of Prince Mohammed Sheik. Afterward, his son raised the place as a Koubba also called KoubbatLallaMessaouda, where he was also buried in the year 1574. Ahmed El-Mansour also buried his mother within the same location, followed by his next three successors. It is considered as one of the first set of a burial chamber.

The second building named as Hall of Twelve columns was also created, and it contains the tomb of Sultan El-Mansour, the room of three niches and the mirhab room. Also, it has additional space for the burials of children. Every room within the structure is exquisitely designed and decorated.
