The Sacred Fish pool is north of the fortress, in front of the Rizvaniye Mosque. It contains a school of carp considered holy by the local population, and eating one of them is considered a sacrilege. According to the Islamic interpretation of an ancient legend, Abraham was thrown into the burning pyre on this site but thanks to a miracle, the fire turned into a cool and peaceful rose garden, and the lake created.
