With two stories, Diri Baba Mausoleum dates to the 15th century. According to legend, Diri Baba, a holy man, is buried there in an undisclosed location. Other legends added more mystical details, which made the place a focus for pilgrims since the 17th century. The entire complex is built inside the rock and from the side, the impression is created that the tomb is suspended in the air. Climb the stairs to the second floor, where you will find the most interesting part of the mausoleum, a room with a vaulted dome, a stone carved decoration and a memorial to Sheikh Ibrahim on the wall. As you climb the floors you will notice more ancient and mysterious inscriptions. Through the narrow passage in the northern wall you can reach the cave, where the holy place is buried.
