About ERTUGRUL GHAZI ;

Ertugrul Ghazi is the father of the founder of the Ottoman Empire, Osman Ghazi. Although the information about him is uncertain, it is known that; he was a member of the Kayi Clan. The ancestors of Ertugrul Ghazi were under the command of Sultan Tugrul Bey of Seljuks and Alparslan and they came to Ahlat region first. They joined to the raids in Anatolia. After Eyyubies had captured Ahlat, Gunduz Alp, the father of Ertugrul Ghazi, migrated to Mardin region. And after the plunder of Mardin by the Mongolians, they left this region and they moved through central Anatolia. The Kayi Clan, under the command of Gunduz Alp migrated to Surmelicukur of Pasinler plain of Erzurum. In a short while Gunduz Alp fallen ill and died and Ertugrul Ghazi replaced him. As the Mongolians advanced in Anatolia, he and his brother Dundar Bey moved through the western parts of Anatolia. In Sivas, they assisted the Seljuk Army against the Mongolians. Alaeddin Keykubat, the sultan of the Seljuks rewarded Ertugrul Ghazi for his service and he gave Ertugrul Ghazi, Karacadag and its province, near Ankara. The Kayi Clan had settled in Karacadag for some time, and later they moved through the Sogut region, in the Byzantine border. He campaigned the Byzantine villages. Ertugrul Ghazi helped Alaaddin Keykubat in the war against the Greek Empire in Emeniderbendi (the region between today’s Pazaryeri and Bozoyuk). The sultan gave him Eskisehir and its province to Kayi Clan. After this success, he marched through the Byzantine borders and conquered Sogut. Sogut became the capital of the Kayis. The campaigns continued and Ertugrul Ghazi gained power and extended his borders.

Ertugrul Ghazi died at the age of 90 and his tomb is on 1 km east of Sogut region of Bilecik. Osman Ghazi had succeeded him.

What is Baklava ;

You must taste baklava during your stay in Istanbul. The recipe may sound too easy to be true: chopped nuts are spread in between the phyllo (yufka) layers, dressed with butter, baked and sweetened with syrup or honey. But the excellence depends on the quality of the flour, the thinness of the dough (phyllo) and the proportion of the syrup.

Baklava is a rich, sweet pastry featured in many cuisines of the former Ottoman countries. It is a pastry made of layers of phyllo dough filled with chopped walnuts or pistachios and sweetened with syrup or honey.

Sufi Cultures & Whirling Dervish Ceremony in a Monastery every Thursday

Whirling Dervish Ceremony In Istanbul – Silivrikapi
Sufi Cultures & Whirling Dervish Ceremony in a Monastery

Idea : During this Monastery visit & Dervish Ceremony; you will see the story of Sufism, Sufism and their communities in Istanbul, Turkey, today. You will meet the Sufi community and their monastery, listen to their music, eye-witness the Whirling Dervishes Ceremony. The ceremonies are presented every Thursdays.

Known to the west as Whirling Dervishes, the Mevlevi Order was founded by Mevlana Rumi in the 13th century. The Order wrote of tolerance, forgiveness, and enlightenment. They survive today as a cultural brotherhood. They are not theatrical spectacles but sacred rituals. The ritual of the Mevlevi sect, known as the sema, is a serious religious ritual performed by Muslim priests in a prayer trance to Allah. Mevlevi believed that during the sema the soul was released from earthly ties, and able to freely and jubilantly commune with the divine. Dervish literally means “doorway” and is thought to be an entrance from this material world to the spiritual, heavenly world. The Whirling Dervishes played an important part in the evolution of Ottoman high culture.

 

From the fourteenth to the twentieth century, their impact on classical poetry, calligraphy and visual arts was profound. Rumi and his followers integrated music into their rituals as an article of faith. Rumi emphasized that music uplifts our spirit to realms above, and we hear the tunes of the Gates of Paradise.

The ceremony is in a real monastery in on Thursday evenings
Meeting time is 20:00 pm in our Travel Agency and Art Gallery located in Sultanahmet !

PRICE = 25 EURO Per person

Pierre Loti district constitutes the most important observation deck of the Golden Horn. There is also a binocular viewer on the observation terrace up on the Pierre Loti side of the line, which was opened in 2005.

Stations : Eyup-Pierre Loti

Buses

There is an extensive network of inexpensive and reliable public and private bus (otobüs) services throughout Istanbul. Regular buses charge a standard fixed rate, while express buses to longer destinations may cost double. The Istanbul Card works on all public and private buses, and short-term passes can be purchased in most transportation hubs (metro and ferry stations) and at many kiosks around the city.


Ferries (Vapur)

Ferries are one of the most convenient and enjoyable modes of transportation in Istanbul. The city offers municipal and private boats to ferry you to various points on either side of the Bosphorus and also to the Princes’ Islands. On municipal boats, you may use your Istanbul Card or tokens are available inside the stations. Private boats run more frequently and the more popular locations now accept Istanbul Cards. If they are not equipped for Istanbul Card, then you can easily pay the fare at the kiosk before boarding.


Tram

The metro is connected to Istanbul’s light rail system via the tunnel funicular trains at Taksim and Tünel located at either end of Istiklal Boulevard. The tram and light rail systems  cover a significant part of Istanbul, both the European and Asian sides. Routes and timetables can be found on the Istanbul Ulaşım website .


Metro (Subway)

There is a modest but continually expanding subway system  servicing many parts of the city. Tokens are available inside the stations or you may use your Istanbul Card. Routes and timetables can be found on the Istanbul Ulaşım website .


MetroBus

Metrobüs is the name of Istanbul’s rapid transit bus (BRT) system implemented and operated in Istanbul, Turkey. The name Metrobüs was coined by the transit agency to suggest that this system is a hybrid between a metro train and a bus. The system operates through its own fully separated right-of-way lane between Avcılar and Zincirlikuyu, the western end of the Bosphorus Bridge, and also between Söğütlüçeşme and the eastern end of the Bosphorus Bridge. The buses travel on the Bridge in mixed traffic.


Dolmuş and Mini-buses

Some main routes are also served by private mini-buses (‘dolmuş’), which are a cross between a bus and taxi. They follow specific, fixed routes, but passengers can get off anywhere along the route. Destinations are listed on a placard on the outside of the dolmuş. The cost is determined by distance travelled: when getting on, tell the driver your destination and he will tell you how much it will cost. Often he will make change while he is driving, so hold on!  To indicate you want to disembark, you will say, “inecek var” (IN-eh-JEK var). These minibuses do NOT accept Istanbul Card.

Another type of private mini-bus is used for longer express trips (for example, between Kadiköy and Taksim square). These mini-buses have a fixed price listed when you get in, and generally only stop at a couple of drop-off points close to the final destination. These mini-buses depart once they are full.


Taxi

Except during rush-hour and heavy rain, private, metered taxis are easy to find, and their fares are less than in most European and American cities. Know, too, that traffic in Istanbul can be very heavy, and that it can take a long time to travel even a short distance. Very few taxi drivers speak English or other foreign languages. They all have meters and receipts can be given if asked (a receipt is called fiş, pronounced “fish”). Very few if any taxis have credit card machines, so always make sure you are carrying enough cash. If you travel via the TEM highway (toll road) or across the Bosphorus bridges (in either direction), the toll fees are extra and you will be expected to pay this. Tipping is not necessary; it is sufficient to round up your fare to the nearest Lira (e.g., 7.68 TL = 7 TL). Fares start with a fixed base rate and then increase with a rate per kilometer. Until you have your choice Turkish phrases memorized, it’s a good idea to write down where you’re going to (or have someone else do it) and show the name/address to the driver to avoid any potential confusion. Make sure the taxi driver you take knows the location of your desired destination before you get in. Occasionally drivers will try to scam customers by going a long way. Knowing the taxi number, and having the driver know that you know it is a good deterrent to taxi fraud. The taxi number is located on the side/roof/license plate of all taxis (e.g., 34 TEB 29).

Intercity Buses

The intercity bus service is cheap, comfortable, and extremely efficient. The onboard service is similar to that of airplanes in that stewards frequently offer drinks and snacks. The more reliable companies are Varan, Pamukkale, Nilüfer, Metro and Ulusoy. Most of these intercity buses have prohibited smoking on the buses. The buses stop at their own company-owned restaurants and pit-stops which are generally clean and comfortable.

Their branches are mostly located on the Barbaros Street in Beşiktaş (across the main street) as well as other center (Taksim etc.).

Istanbul Sahaba Tours Visits

Private Full Day Sahaba Tour in Istanbul

The Prophet Muhammad ( SAW ) said: “Verily you shall conquer Constantinople.
What a wonderful  leader its leader shall be, and what a wonderful army that army will be!” (Musnad Ahmad).

Istanbul is the center of religion for centuries. After the ottoman period Islamic Religion spreaded througout the city. The first mosque in Istanbul was built in Kadikoy on the Asian side of the city, which was conquered by the Ottoman Turks in 1353.

The first mosque on the European side of Istanbul was built inside the Rumeli Castle in 1452. The first grand mosque which was built in the city proper is the Eyup Sultan Mosque (1458), while the first imperial mosque inside the city walls was the Fatih Mosque (1470) which was built on the site of the Church of the Holy Apostles, an important Byzantine church which was originally edificed in the time of Constantine the Great.

Many other imperial mosques were built in the following centuries, such as the famous Suleymaniye Mosque (1557) which was ordered by Suleiman the Magnificent and designed by the great Ottoman architect Sinan, and the famous Sultan Ahmet Mosque (1616) which is also known as the Blue Mosque for the blue tiles which adorn its interior. Istanbul was the final seat of the Islamic Caliphate, between 1517 and 1924.

The personal belongings of Mohammed and the earliest Caliphs who followed him are today preserved in the Topkapı Palace, the Eyup Sultan Mosque and in several other prominent mosques of Istanbul.
