Photographer's Note

This photograph was taken in Beypazari at As Balikcilik...

Beypazari (Turkish: Beypazarı "The Bey's market") is a city located approx. 80 km west of Ankara, Turkey, and the capital of a Turkish district of the same name.
Originally a stop on the Silk Road connecting Constantinople (now Istanbul) to Baghdad, Beypazari was known as Lagania during Roman and Byzantine times, and was a regional administrative center. According to official records, the population in Beypazarı in 1573 was 10,000 people, and this shows the historical importance of Beypazarı.
The town was conquered by Turkish troops in the 12th Century, and eventually became part of the Ottoman Empire. Sites of interest include the 17th Century Suluhan Caravanserai (guesthouse), and the 13th Century Sultan Aladdin Mosque.
