|Nabi Habeel Mosque|
مسجد النبي هابيل
This mosque is believed to contain the grave of Abel (Arabic: "Habeel" ), son of Adam as believed by Muslims, who are frequent visitors of this mosque for ziyarat. The mosque was built by Ottoman Wali Ahmad Pasha in 1599, and it is said to have 40 mihrabs.
Inside the mosque is a 23-feet long sarcophagus covered with green silk tapestry inscribed with verses from the Qur'an, with some locals saying that this was the size of the world's builders, including Abel.
