CULTURAL AND HISTORICAL ATTRACTIONS OF BIHAC'S CITY CORE

BIHAC‘S MAUSOLEUM
There are several myths about the construction of the Mausoleum. One says that two pashas got killed defending the fortified Bihac from the powerful army of Franc Joseph. They were buried to rest in piece across from the Captain’s tower. The wife of one of them claimed to have seen a green light coming out of the graves and according to the religion it meant that pashas had consecrated. Shortly after that faithful believers raised a wooden mausoleum right above the graves and built two headstones inside. For a long period of time this monument was guarded by the sentry. We can say with certainty that the Mausoleum comes from the period of Ottoman rule of B&H. When Austro – Hungarians came to this area they moved the Mausoleum for few meters and rebuilt it in “Bihacit” stone and that shape and form has remained until today. This purely sacral monument was damaged during the last war in B&H but it was repaired and today it presents precious value of Muslims’ spiritual culture of this area. There is no knowledge about who those two pashas were but even without those details Bihac Mausoleum attracts the attention of all the visitors who come here to see the city and meet its people. Together with the Captain’s tower and the Catholic Church tower, Mausoleum makes the historical core of Bihac and gives the city a distinctive mark.
