A LinkedIn Gravestone

I took a stroll through the cemetery across from the Mevlana Museum in Konya, Turkey.

This was my first time exploring a Muslim cemetery.

The grave above attracted my attention because I am nearly certain that it had the only tombstone in the entire cemetery with a photograph of the person buried there.

But this is not just any photo – it’s a photo of the deceased dressed in his white doctor’s coat with his arms crossed. His title is also listed on his tombstone.

The doctor died in 2019 and it does not seem like his LinkedIn profile-esque tombstone has caught on. It did, however, catch my attention.
