This is the burial place of Islwyn the poet. In the picture here you can see Islwyn's gravestone, which is the tall obelisk in the middle of the image.
It is a small chapel in the village of Cwmfelinfach, not far from where Islwyn was born. The chapel boasts a visitor centre, which unfortunately no longer appears to be open. There are several danger signs plastered to the fence and gates warning people to stay out as the graves are dangerous...
Take a look at this website which gives a potted history of Islwyn's life: http://www.crosskeys.me.uk/history/islwyn.htm
There are some excellent photographs showing Babel chapel at the bottom of this link:
