Tartan House
Turkey

The Tartan House, located in the center of Karaman city, was built by Hacı Ahmet Efendi, a member of Tartanzade Family, in 1810. The building, with its layout based on a middle sofa and two flats, is one of the beautiful examples of Anatolian Turkish House Architecture. However, hand carving ornaments rather than wooden ornaments of the house are more striking. In the first floor’s octagonal ceiling, there are some pictures having images that could be used in Turkish art only after the Westernization process as in Sultanahmet Mosque, Dolmabahçe Palace, Maiden’s Tower, the Tomb of Sultan Mahmut, the second and paddle steamers, sailing ships, as well.

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.
