A mystical grave in the middle of a road in a Turkish city raises many questionsPictolic
The last thing you expect is to find a grave in the middle of a busy street. In the Turkish city of Sivas, a tombstone rises right at the intersection. No one knows who is buried here and why they decided to leave the burial place in the center of the intersection, putting asphalt around it. The mysticism surrounding the tombstone intrigues many, and photos and videos of this place have flown around social networks.
Yeni Mahalle Khamzaoglu is one of several streets in the Sharkyshla district of the city of Sivas, but it has one strange difference. Right in the middle of the asphalt there is a grave here. The tombstone appeared several years ago, but only recently attracted the attention of Internet users when photos and videos from drones appeared on social networks.
The gravestone has the inscription "Martyr Gariban Baba", but no one knows who is buried in the grave. Once, in order to build a new district of Sarkyshla, local residents were temporarily relocated. It is believed that the mystical grave was located in one of the courtyards. It remains unknown why asphalt was laid around the burial site instead of bypassing it at a distance of several meters.
The head of the district says that the workers who paved the road decided not to reburial the remains, so as not to disturb the spirit of the deceased. There are rumors that the deceased once appeared to the last residents of the house near which the grave used to be located, and said that this place in the past was a sacred altar.
Locals believe that a saint or a scientist is buried here. Sometimes someone brings flowers to the grave. No one cares that the burial is located right in the middle of the road.
Meanwhile, a mass grave was discovered near Cairo, which is about 2,400 years old. There are 50 mummies found there, the study of which will help to find out a lot of interesting things.
