Dear resident insurance customers, we will share Kayseri province with you in this week's Beauties of Turkey series. If you're ready, let's get to know Kayseri.
If you did not go in a season with cold winds coming from Erciyes, it is best to walk around Kayseri, where you can encounter a historical place in almost every corner.
Kayseri Cumhuriyet Square is a good starting point to start exploring the city. When you stand in Cumhuriyet Square, the heart of the city, and examine your surroundings, you can see traces of 5,000 years. You can see the historical heritage of the Byzantine, Seljuk, Ottoman and Republic periods from where you are from the castle from the Romans. The old Kayseri and the new Kayseri are intertwined in this square.
Kayseri Castle: The most important of the historical buildings in Kayseri. It goes back to the 3rd century A.D. It was used in Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman periods. The castle has 2 gates and 18 sign, then another door was opened. In general, castles are built in hills, high points, while Kayseri Castle is one of the rare examples set up in a flat area.
Kayseri Clock Tower: During the time of Sultan Abdulhamit II, an edict was issued for the construction of a clock tower and a muvakkithane (places set up next to mosques and during the work of adjusting prayer times according to the movements of the sun). The 10-meter-high Kayseri Clock Tower was built of cut stone in 1906 as a result of this edict.
Bürüngüz Mosque: A mosque built by Refik Bürüngüz in the classical Ottoman architectural style. There is also a point that dominates Cumhuriyet Square. The mosque was built in the 6th century, with a single dome, a single minaret.
Kurşunlu Mosque: Located between Kayseri Grand Bazaar and Hilton Kayseri. It is said to be one of two mosques built by Mimar Sinan in Kayseri. There are doubts about the claim that Mimar Sinan was 97 at the time. It is worth seeing pen embroidery and decorations.
