Description

093- View of the street façade of the tomb of Turkan Khatun. Very little is known about this lady, except that she must have been a noblewoman from the eastern Islamic world making her pilgrimage to Jerusalem. The street façade of this small tomb consists of panels of intricately carved stone panels above a pair of recessed windows divided by a pier. The pier has a dedicatory inscription carved in stone, seen in the center of this photograph.
