Tire

Tire is the town which was called the region of monks before Islamism and the city of ulemas after Islamism that raised the most famous ulemas of the court from Suleiman the Magnificent to Fatih the Conqueror. Tire hosts highly important artifacts such as the unique Yalınayak Bath that is thought to be built by Mimar Sinan with a navel stone for 20 people, the wine pool in Hisarlık Village that was one of the Orthodox centers, Ulu Mosque that was converted into a mosque from church and that has the quotes of Saint Catherina on its walls, the mint that printed the first money of Anatolia, the kulliye that was built by the dowry money of Yıldırım Beyazit’s wife Hafsa Hatun, and many manuscripts. 

The most important artifacts that survived until today from this town that showed the most beautiful examples of brotherhood of religions where the Jews, Christians and Muslims lived together for years, are the unique Agia Kiryaki Chapel that is built back to back and Ekinhisarı Mosque. Şemsettin Bey Mescid that was constructed on an Ayazma is the other example of this brotherhood. These structures that get the two religions together under a single roof prove that tolerance and friendship were hand in hand in this town before centuries.
