The Zaouia of Moulay Idriss II is a zawiya (a shrine and religious complex; also spelled zaouia) in Fez, Morocco. It is dedicated to and contains the tomb of Idris II (or Moulay Idris II when including his sharifian title), who ruled Morocco from 807 to 828 and is considered the main founder of the city of Fes and of the first Moroccan Islamic state. It is located in the heart of Fes el-Bali, the UNESCO-listed old medina of Fez, and is considered one of the holiest shrines in Morocco. The tomb also contains a mosque with the same orientation.
