Emir Ali Kümbeti
Ahlat, Turkey
Emir Ali Kümbeti is in the İkikubbe neighborhood of Ahlat. Its precise date and other details are uncertain because the only legible part of the tomb's epitaph reads, "Ali." The epitaph of nearby Erzen Hatun Kümbeti states that that tomb's namesake is the daughter of Emir Ali. This helps place the construction of Emir Ali Kümbeti in the second half of the 14th century CE/8th century AH, the commonly accepted date range of its construction. It was repaired in 1976 by the General Directorate for Foundations (Vakıflar Genel Müdürlüğü).

Unlike the other kümbets of Ahlat, Emir Ali Kümbeti has an iwan at its entrance. Its base is rectangular and its dimensions are 6.05 x 5.35 meters. The square base has beveled corners that make the transition to the tomb's octagonal drum, which is squat in proportion.
