IMARET MOSQUE
Turkey

The İmaret Mosque, located in Karaman city center, was built by İbrahim Bey, the second of Karamanoğlu, in 1451. The deed of trust of the mosque’s foundation dated 1431 has set up strict rules that drew the boundaries and purposes of the intended usage of the built. According to this deed of trust, all people in need were entitled to meet their needs for free and this purpose was guaranteed by those strict rules. Built to serve multi-functional, it has two floors, four iwans and a closed courtyard. It is completely made of ashlars. Marbles were also used in the portal and colored stones on the minaret and the entrance door. On the portal and minaret, ornaments with muqarnas were utilized. It is a beautiful and worth seeing masterpiece as the wooden door wings of the entrance door and vaulted rooms are the most popular examples of Karamanoğlu woodwork in the XV. century.

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.
