Fasıllar Cemetery

The Fasıllar Cemetery, which includes tombs belonging to Turks who came to Anatolian lands at the beginning of the 11th century, also reflects hundreds of years of history. The Turks first come to Beyşehir and its surroundings together with the Anatolian Seljuk State. Seljuks, who have moved from nomadic life to a settled life and want to spread, buried their dead, while an art monument planted the beautiful tombstones at the head of the burial. Handcrafted relief and figure-making techniques are used in these stones. The works created from one piece of cutting stone thus reach the present day. A total of 28 tombstones are found in archaeological surveys covering the 19th and 20th centuries. These tombstones in The Fasıllar Village of Beyşehir are a history page that has survived from the past to the present. In the 1960s, as a result of the researches carried out by Ibrahim Hakki Konyalı, many of the tombstones were found to be composed of those who died on the same year and on the same day. Historians assume that there are people who died of the same date as a result of a big fight, and nine people died in just one day.
