Ismail Fakirullah Tomb and its Light Refraction Mechanism is part of the Tentative list of Turkey in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Ismail Fakirullah Tomb is a structure in the Sufi tradition which yearly on March 21 (at Nowruz) is illuminated by the sun. The sun beams are captured by a prism on top of the tower, which then refracts it and shines on the tomb for 6 minutes. The building dates from the 18th century.
