The shrine of Saint Nikola and the H’d’r Baba tekke.

In Macedonia it is common to find shrines shared by multiple faiths, wherein Christians and Muslims worship together in absolute harmony. According to the Christians, the shrine of Saint Nikola is believed to have been built as a church by the saint of the same name, whereas Muslims believed it was founded as a tekke by H’d’r Baba. Despite the disagreement over it’s origins, it has brought the community together rather then divided them, and both faiths share this holy place as a sanctuary for worship in which all are welcome.

It’s walls are lined with icons of Jesus Christ, Mother Mary, and Christian saints all alongside icons of Imam Ali, Imam Hussain, and Bektashi saints. It is maintained by clergy of both faiths.
