Doner Cupola

Döner Kümbet is located at Kartal Junction in Kayseri Melikgazi district.

The tomb, decorated with figures of a double-headed eagle, a human-headed and winged leopard, a lion and the tree of life, dates back to 1276.

This tomb, which belongs to Shah Cihan Sultan, is popularly called rotating tomb because it has 12 surfaces and the geometric shapes and stone workmanship of the other ten surfaces, except for the two surfaces next to the entrance door, are very close to each other.

When you walk around the tomb, the same signs and motifs can be seen.
