The ancient town of Hasankeyf, located in southeastern Turkey, faces the threat of becoming submerged into the lake of a new dam. Archeologists as well as scientists have rolled up their sleeves to salvage the historical relics of the town, starting off with the historic Zeynel Bey Tomb

The ancient tomb of Zeynel Bey, a 650-year-old piece of history lying near the Ilısu Lake in the Hasankeyf district of Batman province in southeastern Turkey, is being relocated due to the threat that the Ilısu Dam poses to its viability.

 With the project carried out in collaboration with Dutch and Turkish scientists, the historic tomb which was built as the resting place of Zeynel Bey, the son of the founder of the Aq Qoyunlu dynasty Uzun Hassan will be moved 2 kilometers away from its current location.

 Speaking to the press, Mesut Yılmaz, an engineer working for the Turkish company responsible for relocation of the tomb alongside the Dutch company, assured that officials are taking every precautionary measure to avoid any damage to the historic structure.

 "We will lift the building 90 centimeters above the ground with a vehicle on wheels known as an 'SPM-T' before moving the tomb to a location 2 kilometers from its original resting place," Yılmaz said.
