Kara Ali Cemetery

The only Moslem Cemetery reached today in Chios. Kara Ali who gave his name to the cemetery, could not be defined. It is mostly dated to late period of time and has got over 30 graves. We can list two of the graves like well known person Mrs. Ismet who passed away in 1901, and Hafız Hasan Agha, the tax collector of Chios who passed away in 1839. We can identify a shadirvan in front of it by an old picture. Because it is a partial evidence of the existance of Turks on Chios, it is guarded today.
