Kadılar Türbesi
Amasya, Turkey
Located across the narrow lane from Halifet Gazi Türbesi are two chambers made from rubble and built into the ascending slope of the hill, open on their north sides to the road through a large pointed arch. They are known as Kadılar Türbesi (Tomb of the Qadis, or judges). The chambers contain a number of sarcophagi, one inscribed with the name of Shadgeldi Paşa and dated to 1381/783 AH.
