There is no certain information about who built it and why however the rumors are claiming that it may be a tomb of a hero, it was built as a lighthouse or a watchhouse, it was a church once. Even if there is no evidence to promote any of these claims, today it is a popular photo and sundown watching spot for local and foreign visitors. It is a short walk far from Hadrian’s Gate and Broken Minaret as well.
