    Tuyserkan_Prophet_Heyghoogh_Mausoleum_Painting.jpg
    A prophet in the Hebrew Bible that means (embracer) He is the eighth of the twelve minor prophets and likely the author of the Book of Habakkuk, which bears his name. A mausoleum in the city of Tooyserkan is believed to be Habakkuk's burial place. Habakkuk was believed to be a guardian to the Temple of Solomon, and that he was captured by the Babylonians and remained in their prison for some years. After being freed by Cyrus the Great, he went to Ecbatana and remained there until he died, and was buried somewhere nearby, in what is today Tooyserkan. Habakkuk is called both Habaghugh and Hayaghugh by the locals.
