Three Domes

The Three Domes, one of the most beautiful examples of the mausoleums found in Anatolia, stand out with its conical cylindrical structure. Although there is no clear information about the Three Domes, it is thought that the largest mausoleum belongs to Emir Saltuk and was built in the late 12th century. It is not known who owns the other domes, but it is estimated that they were also built in the 14th century. Although there are differing opinions about why small square works are made next to the mold, they are generally said to be moldors or mosques. Emir Saltuk Dome is made of cut stone and stones of different colors. The octagonal structure has round severing, animal reliefs such as bulls, snakes, bats and eagles in pulley niche. The most prominent niche in the dome is the human head figure that comes out of the bull horns. The other two domes are one is round and the other is square-based but conically constructed. The dome with square plan is made of a gray stone and has 8 façades. The round dome is made of local keyek stone. There are figures in the conical cone covering the dome, similar to Emir Saltuk Kümbeti. The distance between two cubic domes is four meters.
