Istanbul june 2009 2508.jpg

This is a plane tree in the garden of the mosque with a grave (or the indication there formerly was a grave) of Helvacı Baba Sahabe Türbesi. It seems to be visited by, in particular, women, on Friday.
From a message on the web I understood the grave seems to have been taken away in the '70's, I do not understand if it returned.
