AKTEKKE MOSQUE
Turkey
The Aktekke Mosque, located in Karaman city center, has been built by Alaaddin Bey in 1370. Ashlars were used as the construction material which has given a particular natural appearance to the mosque. With its single dome and high minaret it is a worth seeing structure. The minaret is the first example of classical Ottoman minarets. Inside the mosque, there are the tombs of Mümine Khatun, the mother, Alaaddin Çelebi, the brother and some relatives of Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi, and also Karamanoğlu Seyfeddin and Süleyman Bey. The windows of the mosque were designed to facilitate the penetration of sunlight in order to utilize day light in maximum. In the prayer hall of the mosque it is possible to see one of the beautiful hand carvings of the Ottoman Classical Period.

More About Middle East

Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.Text by Steve Smith.
