Gelibolu History

This grave in the median in Gelibolu has recently been referbuished 
so the lettering is legible.  A quick translation:

Gaffar (name)
Baba (father)
Turbesi (tomb)
Ruhuna fatiha (to the spirit of Al-Fatiha)

This isn't the only tomb in an odd place. There are others in the median and one built into a sidewalk about a block or so from this one. Just another reminder that this little town has been a town since before 1354.
