The Princess' Turbe
The image here was taken before 1934. The turbe was largely destroyed by the 1963 earthquake.
Before that time people used to visit this grave. Little Katarina was maybe 10 when she died. By then she and her brother had become Muslim.
Little Katarina must have had a very good reputation for piety. Burial in a turbe is not for just anyone. It is a very special honor.
The turbe stood solid some 500 years. There are still remains of it.
I searched far and wide in CyberSpace for this image.
