Grinding is one of the most important conversion processes of grain into flour to make mush, among the Bura-Pabir ethnic tribes of Northeastern Nigeria. This research, therefore, aims to explore the construction of Mburr (Grinding stone) in a pictorial view. The research approach comprised of data collected through photograph and interview. Hence the architecture in the construction of Mburr and their function has mostly been inferred on the basis of grindstone morphology. One of the problems has been that the grinding stones are facing extinction among Bura-Pabir ethnic tribes, the compliance of the modern grinding machine constitute a major factor. There is a need to preserve culture.
