The cemetery of the Issız Cuma Mosque in the Yenice district of Çanakkale is full of secrets. Built in 1335, the mosque was named 'Issız Cami' because there were no buildings around it.

In a village in Sakarya province, unexplained events begin and everyone in the village leaves. After these interesting events, the claims put forward are that the village was raided by jinns.
