As reported by the Turkish news media (link, here and here), following an official state visit by the Prime Minister of Turkey Recep Tayyip ERDOGAN (2010) it was agreed that construction would take place on a mausoleum and a small museum in honor of Imam Ghazālī at the site of his tomb at the outskirts of Tus, near modern day city of Mashhad, Iran. A recent vistor (June 2010) to Tus was kind enough to send us pictures of the site where the excavation of the Imam's burial place to reconfirm the discovery.
