Marabou at Igzer. Here some info from the web: "Originally, the Marabou was a wise man. We would probably call him a Saint. However the word has taken on another meaning, it is also his crypt (like a miniature mosque) normally situated where he lived or died, or where he is worshipped (usually in the desert but often near to a well). One of his ancestors takes care of and guards the tomb. Situated next to the mausoleum there is often a "hotel", a small room where pilgrims can shelter for the night. In this small room the "guardian of the tomb" often leaves a little flour, couscous, pasta, oil, etc. so that the pilgrims can restore their strength if they so need. The ever-present nomads hospitality!!!."
