Mevlana :: Mehmet Bey Mausoleum

A small open mausoleum of the baldachin type, little more than a cupola supported on four columns, this monument is found in the southern courtyard of the convent, east of the cemetery. A marble cataphalque-type tomstone dedicated to Mehmed Bey, son of Mustafa Pasha, who died in 1534 occupies part of the stone-paved area under the cupola. The cemetery to which this mausoleum is attached also contains two symbolic tombs dedicated to the poet Nef'i and Muhammed Ikbal (The Pakistani National Poet).
