G. Romme in his “The Travelogue in Crimea” mentioned a tomb of a certain Hayder-Khan on Chufut-Kale. The authors have analyzed a number of 17th to 19th-century descriptions of the fortress and arrived at the conclusion that the French traveler had apparently been misled by his guide. There had never been any tomb of Khan Haydar (Aidar) on Chufut-Kale. The only known mausoleum on the plateau is the dürbe (mausoleum) of Canike (Janike)-Hanym who died in 1437.

Keywords: Crimean Khanate, Chufut-Kale, Bakhchisaray, dürbe, Girays, Haydar Khan, Canike-Hanim
