“Very beautiful tomb”
Review of Doner Kumbet

Doner Kumbet
Reviewed 27 August 2014

This is actually one of the most beautiful structures in Kayseri, and one of the most beautiful tombs of its kind in Turkey. It is pleasantly proportioned and its surface is elaborately carved with interesting details, including palm trees and animals. It was built in 1276 for a Seljuk princess.

It's a little bit out of the way if you're walking; almost one kilometre (15 minutes or so) southeast of the citadel/castle along the main road. There are a few other mildly interesting mausoleums and minor mosques along the way, and another mausoleum (Emir Ali Pisrev tomb, 1350 AD) a little further southeast down the same road.
