Heybeliada - Süslü Mezar

There is another tomb on the grounds just below the road that leads past the monastery. This is the 1868 mausoleum of the wife of the noted eccentric Spyridon Kanglaris; when he died, he was buried next to this monument. This octagonal brick structure with open ogive arches is screened by wrought iron gratings. On the hillside below it there is a marble wellhead commissioned in 1910 by the abbot Procopius Arapoğlu. Water is still drawn from the cistern beneath.
