The first room of the ‘Orta Sofa’ (Middle hall), under restoration.
When entering the southeastern aisle of the complex, one finds three rooms connecting with each other. These are called the ‘Orta Sofa (Middle hall). The specialists, however, do not agree upon the question whether all three rooms should be called also ‘Türbedar Odası’ (room of the ‘Türbedar’ = head of the personnel taking care of the graves); some of them reserve this name to the third room only (where the doors are that lead into the mosque and the mausoleum of Seyit Battal Gazi).
