Mausoleum of Ibn Zaydi

Mausoleum of Ibn Zaydi

Merv

An ancient saxual tree decorated with bits of clothing each representing a prayer - note the similarity with Buddhism which once was prevalent in these parts. When we were there a young couple came to visit the caretaker to ask a prayer of him. They brought with them a live chicken as an offering.
