Turkish Delight: Turkey & Its History

Facebook Twitter

I've been to Turkey six times now, first as a tourist, the other times as a guest and an English teacher. I really fell in love with the country, and some of the Turks have even adopted me as one of their own. :) This Pearltree is about my fascination with things Turkish, the culture, history, and the people. I consider Turkey my second home. Sep 10

Rumi Ruminations - Wisdom of Rumi Rumi Ruminations - Wisdom of Rumi Now that we have explored the relationship between Rumi and Shems and come away with an insight and a conclusion, it is time to move on to T The Messages that Rumi Broadcast to the World . To do that, we return to several of the same sources we just perused and move into different sections of those books to now get a grip on the messages that Rumi felt compelled, in his ecstatic state, to bring into the world. I find it of interest that achieving the state of profound union with God through 'turning', or whirling, is still a practice within Sufism. More than that, there are traveling dance troupes that bring this religious experience to non-Sufi, non-Muslim audiences around the world as well. Rumi Ruminations - Wisdom of Rumi

Aya Sofya is the most beautiful building that survived to the fire, to the earthquake and the vandalism of rioters but each time it literally rose from its ashes was to be the most majestic human construction ever before seen. The church of Holy wisdom was constructed in 360 AD by the Constantine’s son. It remained until 404 AD as the “Great Church” when the fury of the mob did not let trace of the original structure. Rebuilt in larger dimensions by Thodosius II in 405 AD during the Nika revolt it was burnt down along with half of the city in 532 AD. The next reconstruction was made by Justinian who brought eight Corinthian columns from Baalbek to Constantinople. Hagia Sophia, Turkey - 7 wonders Hagia Sophia, Turkey - 7 wonders

Turkish Van The Turkish Van (Turkish: Van Kedisi) is a longhaired breed of domestic cat with genetic origins in modern Turkey. The breed is claimed to be descended from the landrace of Van cats, mostly found near Lake Van, though one of the two original breeders has stated that none of the original cats used to found the formal breed came from the Van area.[1][2]:114 The breed is rare, and is distinguished by the Van colour pattern, where the colour is restricted to the head and the tail, and the rest of the cat is white;[3] this is due to the expression of the piebald white spotting gene, a type of partial leucism.[4]:148 A Van may have blue or amber eyes, or be odd-eyed, having one eye of each colour. The Turkish Van is nicknamed the swimming cat.
Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of the Turkish Republic and its first President, stands as a towering figure of the 20th Century. Among the great leaders of history, few have achieved so much in so short period, transformed the life of a nation as decisively, and given such profound inspiration to the world at large. Emerging as a military hero at the Dardanelles in 1915, he became the charismatic leader of the Turkish national liberation struggle in 1919. He blazed across the world scene in the early 1920s as a triumphant commander who crushed the invaders of his country. Following a series of impressive victories against all odds, he led his nation to full independence. He put an end to the antiquated Ottoman dynasty whose tale had lasted more than six centuries - and created the Republic of Turkey in 1923, establishing a new government truly representative of the nation's will.
