Ahlat (at the Van lake, but on the other side from Van) is an amazing place. In fact it is one huge graveyard, or rather a couple of them, close to each other. Most gravestones are stand-up type, a meter and a half or even two meters high, with geometric patterns, in some cases with pictorial elements involved, like the tree of life. They all date back to the 13th century. The Lonely Planet guide, probably on some authority, suggests that the stonemasons who worked these stones also worked at the Divrigi Great (Ulu) mosque. See my Divrigi gallery. Some "türbeler" scattered between the graveyards are very nice also.

After another visit in September 2006 I have greatly extended this gallery. And even more so after another June 2010 visit. I will rearrange pictures after some other work that needs to be done.

AHLAT

Ahlat (Van Gölü’nde, ama Van’ın diğer tarafında), hayret verici bir yer. Aslında orası dev bir mezarlık, daha doğrusu birbirine yakın birkaç mezarlık. Mezar taşları, bir buçuk veya iki metre yüksekliğinde ve üzerlerinde geometrik şekiller var, bazıları hayat ağacı gibi resimleri de içeriyor. Hepsi 13. yüzyıldan kalma. Lonely Planet kılavuzu, muhtemelen bazı kaynaklara dayanarak, burada çalışan taş ustalarının Divriği Ulu Cami’nin yapımında da çalıştıklarını ileri sürüyor. Divriği galerimi de görebilirsiniz.

Mezarların arasına serpilmiş bazı türbeler de çok hoş.
