The Gate

This gate was opened by Ottoman emperor Sultan Abdulaziz at 1874. Sultans had come to hunting to my city and after hunting they had been rest a little palace behind this gate.
There had been a forest in my city mountains only 135 years ago. But now not possible to see forest and animals for hunting! Anyway I mean hunting for photo!


  1. Such a beautiful gate and one can only wonder what lays inside those walls...

  2. What an interesting gate! I like the columns too.
