In the courtyard there are three marble headstones from tombs of the tekke.They are on the north east side of the site.The names written on the stones are Chatzi Ali Omer Shiaban Efendi,dervish Sheich El Chats Nigmet Efendi (1734) officer of the order and Ata Efendi (1802).A small circular fountain ,common trademark of the Bekctashic cemeteries ,is in the courtyard.According to the inscriptions it seems that this sounitic tekke of the Mevlevides was founded before the 18th century.
