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.
