Tombs of Talha and Zübeyr

Our next stop is 500 m east of the tomb of Muhammed Ensari. Talha and Zübeyr were among the 10 sahaba who were the first to embrace Islam and who, whilst still alive, were promised paradise. Their tombs can be found on Ağalar Ağası Street in the district of Abdi Oymağı.

Talha and Zübeyr bin Avvam, who were the sons-in-law of Ebubekir, were killed in the battle of Cemel. These tombs have been erected in their name.

  • Mercidabık Plain
    Mercidabık Plain

    As you leave the mausoleum heading towards Kilis, follow the road east in the direction of Elbeyli and you will see, stretching as far as the eye can see, the vast Mercidabık Plain which holds great importance as an original Turkish homeland.

    The Battle of Mercidabık between the Mamluk and Ottoman armies took place in 1516. The victorious Ottomans went on to add Syria, Lebanon and Palestine to their growing lands which paved the way for the caliphate of the Ottoman dynasty. The victory at Mercidabık brought many religious, poitical, military and financial advantages to the Ottoman Empire, and was the beginning of 400 years of Ottoman rule in the region.

    In the centre of the town of Yavuzlu there are 3 monuments dedicated to the Ottoman padishah Yavuz Sultan Selim who was instrumental in this magnificent victory. The first monument, standing in the Yavuzlu Municipality gardens, is a bust statue. The second monument, 100 m northeast of this, displays the words “Even if the enemy soldiers are on all sides, I will not turn away from battle”. Immediately opposite this stands a statue of Yavuz Sultan Selim Han on horseback with his sword.
