Photographer's Note

I took this picture near the Cave of Abraham’s at Şanlıurfa.
The cave where the Prophet Abraham was born lies in the courtyard of the Mevlid-i Halil Mosque, 100 meters east of Lakes Halil-ür Rahman and Aynzelihe. Abraham remained in this cave until his seventh year, and many believe that the medicinal waters found within it can help cure a range of ailments.

In memory of Abraham, a small mosque was built next to the cave in Ottoman times and named the Mevlid-i Halil. When due to its size mosque began to prove incapable of absorbing the crowds of visitors, a large one with twin minarets, named the Yeni Dergah Mosque, was erected beside it in 1986.

Bu gün yine biraz eskiye döndüm.
Şanlıurfa'ya sekiz yıl önce yaptığım bir günlük gezide Hazreti İbrahim mağarası civarında çektiğim bir fotoğraf.
