Information About Doner Dome
Döner Kümbet was built in 1276 in Kayseri for Shah Cihan Hatun, the daughter of Alaeddin Keykubad I, the Anatolian Seljuk Sultan. For this reason, it is also known as Shah Jahan Hatun Cupola. Doner Kumbet is located on Talas road.
The cupola, which is made of yellowish colored cut stone, rests on a black base and has a cylindrical body. 12 sides of the tomb are decorated with floral and geometric motifs made as relief. The tomb is climbed by a narrow staircase in two directions. There are reliefs of two lions with broken human heads on the door. Doner does not make history in the inscription of Kumbet.
According to legend, this tomb is said to have returned. This tomb was taken under protection in 1980.
Around the body, each of the twelve pointed arches formed by the shalon moldings were turned with different ornaments. There is also a ruined relief on the left of the crown door, above a palm tree, a double-headed eagle and a lion on both sides, and another palm tree relief on the right of the crown door.
The double-headed eagle's coat of arms is visible between the two pars-headed eagle figures on the door facade of the vault, which stands out with the abundance of figured plastic ornaments and resembles a monumental tent.
