This is the Mama Hatun Kümbet, a grave monument for a Seljuk princess. She had supported Saladins conquests in these areas with her troops. It was built by Sesi Muffada ("the cross-eyed"), a prince from Ahlat at the Van-lake. It consists of the actual grave (türbe) and a circular wall around it. It was closed, but I took several shots through the grate at the entrance.

This is the entrance. Great stonework as usual with Seljuk buildings.

Cami, hamam ve caravansaraydan oluşan bu külliye Anadolu Selçukları döneminde yörenin yöneticisi Saltuklardan Mama Hatun tarafından yaklaşık 1190-1200 yılları arasında yaptılmıştır.
