The Historical and Architectural Reserve of Icherisheher

The location of the monument on several cultural levels indicates that it is ancient and that this place has been a sacred place of worship for centuries.More than 50 graves located near one another were found in the floor of that yard during archaeological excavations. Tombs were located in different directions. The graves towards the Kaaba (south-west) indicate that they are Muslim graves. There are also burial places before Islam among the found tombs. Both their direction and burial style confirm this. The bones in the cemetery were found as gathered on one side of the grave, and this indicates about reburial.
