Fazıl Ahmet Paşa Madrasah (Taş Madrasah)

The first library in Vezirköprü was built in 1662 by Fazıl Ahmet Pasha and served scholars out of a single room in the Madrasah,which was heavily damaged in the 1943 earthquake and later restored. The Madrasah was a multi-purpose space until 1964, when it became a public library. The building underwent a second restoration in 2002 and now houses 20,000 books. The library is definitely a must-see if you are in the area.

This panorama was taken in Turkey, Middle East

This is an overview of 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.
