  Abrahams birth cave, Sanliurfa
by suvanki

Ok, I'm not religious, but - I found this site quite fascinating and quite moving.

Legend has it, that this is the place of birth of Abraham, and is recognised as an important place for muslims for pilgrimage and prayer.
The Cave is entered through a courtyard, then there are separate entrances for males and females.
I appeared to be the only foreign visitor here.

The cave was quite small, but there were a couple of women knelt in prayer when I entered, so I only stayed for a short while.
