Kutahya Great Mosque Main Entrance
Turkey

Kütahya Ulu Cami Kütahya merkezde bulunan Ulucamii 1381 yılında Germiyanlı Devlet Hatun'un Yıldırım Bayezid ile evlenmesi, 1381-1389 yılları arasında Yıldırım Bayezid'in Kütahya Valiliği yapması ve bu dönemlerde yapımını başlatması sonucu 1410 yılında tamamlanmıştır. 45x25metrelik bir alanı kaplar ve Kütahya'nın en büyük iç alana sahip camii'sidir. Tamamen kesme taştan yapılan Ulucamii 2 tam kubbe ve 6 yarım kubbe ile örtülmüş olup bu kubbeleri 6 sütun taşımaktadır. 64 pencere camii'yi ferah bir görünüme kavuşturmaktadır. Camii'nin ortasındaki şadırvan üzerinde 6 küçük sütun ile tutturulmuş ahşap bir müezzin mahfeli vardır. Kütahya gibi çini üzerine yoğunlaşmış bir şehirde Kabe tasviri dışında camii üzerinde çini bulunmaması dikkat çekicidir.

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.
