Hasanoğlu Mausoleum

Go northeast for 6 km on the Yavuzeli road, then turn off to the left. You will reach the village of Hasanoğlu where the tomb is located. The mausoleum is built of cut stone and has a square base. From the beauty of the piers and precision of the arches on the south and west sides, this monument was clearly designed with a keen aesthetic sense and built with care. 

It has two parts: a rectangular tomb chamber and monumental superstructure. It has been dated to the beginning of the 2nd century AD. Entrance to the tomb chamber is via a rectangular door on the south side. The north and east walls, and top half of the base on these sides have fallen down. The quality and wealth of the architectural ornamentation is notable.
