Kars 5366 20092012.jpg

Inside the seyyid Ebu’l-Hasan Harakani türbesi (mausoleum). There is an extensive text on the spot, in Turkish. I read the man lived from 963-1033.
Inside the heavily restored building I found a group of women praying, which often indicates a saintly status. Elsewhere I read he was “one of the Pioneer Saints who came to Anatolia [and] fell martyr in Kars”.
