The Turkish International Cooperation and Development Agency (TİKA) will restore the Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent Mosque in the Hungarian city of Szigetvar. The memorandum of understanding was signed on Nov. 21 between TİKA Chairman Serdar Çam and Szigetvar Mayor Janos Kolovics at the Hungarian Embassy in Ankara.

Çam said the mosque would be open for worship, adding that they would also construct a Turkish house there.

Çam also said historians from both countries would look for the real place where Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent’s organs were buried after he died. When they are found, a new tomb will be built for his organs.

Why would anyone want to build a tomb for "organs" Seems a bit macabre! Would it not be better to re-unite them with his body?
