This Ottoman shrine was located outside of the city gates. It was one of many Prophet shrines destroyed by ISIS. Built over a long period of time the shrine became the center of a massive cemetery and numerous shrines whose fluted domes were evident well into the twentieth century. A new minaret and mosque were built upon the destroyed original structure in the 1970s and 1980s.
