Mausoleum

This tomb structure is located in the garden of the town hall of Yenicekent in the town of Buldan. It is a good example of the polygonal mausoleums frequently used in Anatolia in the 14-15th centuries CE.

The mausoleum is octagonal. The body is raised on a high octagonal drum and the structure is covered with a dome. The entrance is on the north. The entrance door is rather simple with a monolothic marble jamb and round arch. There is no opening in the building other than the door. The only thing that adds some movement to the interior is the brick arches that were built on the wall surfaces.

During the later restorations, the dome was plastered with mortar. The interior was plastered with mud and painted with lime. The sarcophagus seen in the mausoleum was also added at a later date.
