Mausoleum of Habib Bourguiba
The Koubba Sidi el Mezeri Cemetery is one of the most striking spots in Monastir and is located next to the Citadel on a small plateau above the Mediterranean Sea. One of the things that draws your attention is the fact that the graves are all white and perfectly aligned. This is because Muslims must always be buried facing Mecca. Among all the identical graves there is one exception: the Mausoleum of Habib Bourguiba (former president of the country), a grand marble building inspired by the Taj Mahal.
