Long Description:
The 6.5 m x 6.5 m large tomb was erected in the late 14th/early 15th century under the princely house of the Aydinogullari, and remained in use until well into the Ottoman period. From the west, the central room is entered through a marble portal; in the centre, the main grave was set into the ground. On the western side of the room lies an additional burial, while bench was situated along the east wall. Although the occupant of the tomb is not known, the monumentality and carefulness of the tomb's execution point to a person worthy of high honour, who could have belonged to the environment of the ruling dynasty. Around tomb, a cemetery developed, from which tombstones were found.
