Khodja Doniyar Mausoleum

The restored tomb of the Old Testament prophet Daniyar (Daniel) is a long, low structure topped with five domes, containing an 18m sarcophagus – legend has it that Daniel’s body grows by half an inch a year and so the sarcophagus has been enlarged over the centuries. His remains, which date from at least the 5th century BC, were brought here by Timur from Susa, Iran.
