- Cave of the Seven Sleepers: The Cave of Eshab-ı Keyf, which is mentioned in the Qur’an in the Tarsus district of Mersin, is considered sacred for both Islam and Christianity. It is known as the Cave of The Seven Sleepers. Legend has it that the Greek ruler Dakyanus wanted his people to adhere to the religion of paganism. Seven young Christians, namely Yemliha, Mekseline, Mislina, Mernuş, Sazenuş, Tebernuş and Kefeştetayuş, believed in one God and refused to return to idolatry. Hearing this, the ruler threatened them with death. Seven young people took shelter in this cave and the god put them to sleep for 300 years. When the first one to wake up went to buy food, he attracted the attention of the public with old money in his hand and the people wondered where it came from. On top of that, the young man showed the cave, but there were only seven birds in the cave.
