Tomb of Prophet Joshua
Tomb of Prophet Joshua
The Tomb of Prophet Joshua. It is located on a hill named Yuşa Tepesi (Joshua´s Hill) in Istanbul. The length of his tomb is 17 meters long. There are three explanations for that:

1- Since he is a prophet, the tomb was built longer to respect him.
2- The exact place of his burial is not certain. Therefore, it was built longer.
3- In ancient times, it was believed that giants were living on mountains. And that´s why it was built this large. The other name of that hill is The Hill of Giant. (Location: Beykoz, Istanbul)
