Just a few photos from our trip to Cappadocia


Sunset over Beyşehir gölü


Sunrise over Beyşehir gölü


The entrance to Eşrefoğlu Mosque in Beyşehir, this was one of the highlights of our trip. It is an absolutley stunning example of a flat roofed 12th Century Mosque with its original cedar wood pillars and original carvings well worth a visit.


The moons a balloon


Up, Up and away ....

Goreme in Capadoccia is around 880kms from you, Beysehir where we stopped for the night is about 550kms.

I think I got the location of Altinkum right.

Re: Just a few photos from our trip to Cappadocia

Thanks for the comments.

If anyone does go to the mosque at Beysehir I would aim to go there just before 10am. We had the place to ourselves and the Imam who spoke good english explained all the different sections of the mosque and the meanings behind the carvings.

He also gave us a short rendition of a call to prayer, he was very very good and it was quite moving.

We bought a book about the Mosque written by him for 25tl which has some beautiful photographs in it, I think they must have had special permission to use flash or lighting as they are very clear, so although it is in Turkish it is well worth it.

Top Tip: There are three or four women outside trying to sell you a scarf as women need to cover their heads but the Imam has a box of them inside the front door so you don't need to buy one.
