Gaffur Baba Tomb

The first stop on the Karkamış tour is the Orta Camii in the town of Oğuzeli. However, should you wish to stop at the shrines on the way to the town, here is a little information about them.

The Tomb of Gaffur Baba is on top of the hill to the northwest of the road from Gaziantep to Oğuzeli. The pine tree clad hill is also known as Gaffur Baba Hill. 

The shrine is in a natural cave, and its entrance and green dome were later additions. It contains two tombs, and areas for prayer.
