The nomadic Turks of the Central Asia used to live in the tents called Yurt. They owned thousands of horses. In order to feed their animals they needed green pastures. This required them to be in constant move, searching for green lands. This nomadic life influenced them and put them in contact with the neighboring people. At the same time, their neighbors were also influenced by them. One example of this influence can be found in the architecture of tombs found in the Northeast and Northwest of Iran which were inspired by the Turkic tents and burial mounds. This study is aimed at investigating the structure of Turkic tents and tombs and highlighting their similar elements.
