We were there on a day the cemeteries were closed but have a lasting impression of this great site. Each grave is individually accessible via beautiful carved doors. We have done the same tour around the site. You can visit the site where the current sultan will be buried. The whole is impressive. We will definitely be coming back to the cemeteries to visit.
