Hello, everyone, mates. I hope you are all well. Today I will tell you about a place and some stories that have been the subject of legends, songs and folk songs. Today's sharing topic will be the Ferhat and Shirin Lovers Museum in Amasya, which I had the opportunity to visit recently.

Herkese merhaba arkada┼člar. Umar─▒m hepiniz iyisinizdir. Bug├╝n sizlere efsanelere ┼čark─▒lara ve t├╝rk├╝lere konu olmu┼č bir yerden ve baz─▒ hikayelerden bahsedece─čim. Bug├╝nk├╝ payla┼č─▒m konumuz ge├žti─čimiz g├╝nlerde ziyaret etme f─▒rsat─▒ buldu─čum Amasya'daki Ferhat ile ┼×irin A┼č─▒klar M├╝zesi olacak.

Ferhat and Shirin lovers museum is located about 7-8 km south of Amasya city centre. It is located on the slope of a very steep and completely rocky mountain. The garden outside the museum is very beautiful and I can almost call it the miniaturk of Amasya. Because in the garden, there are miniatures of many historical buildings in Amasya. You can see some of them in the images below. Since our subject is the Museum of Lovers, I will not dwell on these miniature artefacts.

Ferhat ile ┼×irin a┼č─▒klar m├╝zesi Amasya ┼čehir merkezinin yakla┼č─▒k 7-8 km g├╝neyinde yer al─▒r. Buras─▒ ├žok dik ve tamamen kayadan olu┼čmu┼č bir da─č─▒n yamac─▒nda bulunuyor. M├╝zenin d─▒┼č─▒ndaki bah├že ├žok g├╝zel ve adeta Amasya'n─▒n miniat├╝rk'├╝ diyebilirim. ├ç├╝nk├╝ bah├žede, Amasya'da bulunan bir├žok tarihi yap─▒n─▒n minyat├╝rleri bulunuyor. Bunlardan baz─▒lar─▒n─▒ alttaki g├Ârsellerde g├Ârebilirsiniz. Konumuz A┼č─▒klar M├╝zesi oldu─ču i├žin bu minyat├╝r eserler ├╝zerinde durmayaca─č─▒m.

There are also two tombs in the garden in honour of Ferhat and Shirin. According to the information written here, Ferhat was a famous painter. While decorating the mansion built by Sultan Mehmene Banu for her sister ┼×irin, he saw ┼×irin and they fell in love with each other. Ferhat sends news to the sultan and asks for Shirin. Sultan does not want to give his sister to Ferhat. In order to distract Ferhat, he stipulates that he must pierce the apple mountain and bring water to the city. Ferhat starts to pierce the mountains with the love of love.

Mehmene Banu sends her nanny to Ferhat, who is about to pierce the mountain and complete the water, and delivers the news that ┼×irin is dead. Ferhat throws the ashtray he holds in his hand into the air upon this painful news. The falling ashtray hits Ferhat's head and Ferhat dies. Receiving the painful news of Ferhat, ┼×irin comes to the rock where the incident took place with fear and excitement. When she sees that Ferhat is dead, she cannot bear the pain and dies by rolling from the rock. Both lovers are buried side by side on the rocks where they rolled.

They say that every spring two roses, one red and one white, grow on the two graves. When these two roses were about to meet each other, a blackthorn in the middle of the graves prevented them from meeting.

Ayr─▒ca bah├žede Ferhat ile ┼×irin an─▒s─▒na yap─▒lan iki de mezar bulunuyor. Burada yazan bilgilere g├Âre Ferhat me┼čhur bir nakka┼čt─▒r. Sultan Mehmene Banu'nun k─▒z karde┼či ┼×irin i├žin yapt─▒rd─▒─č─▒ k├Â┼čk├╝n s├╝slemelerini yaparken ┼×irin'i g├Âr├╝r ve birbirine sevdalan─▒rlar. Ferhat, sultana haber salarak ┼×irin'i istetir. Sultan ise k─▒z karde┼čini Ferhat'a vermek istemez. Ferhat'─▒ oyalamak i├žin elma da─č─▒n─▒ delip ┼čehre su getirmesini ┼čart ko┼čar. Ferhat, sevdan─▒n verdi─či a┼čkla da─člar─▒ delmeye ba┼člar.

Mehmene Banu, da─č─▒ delip suyu tamamlamak ├╝zere olan Ferhat'─▒n yan─▒na dad─▒s─▒n─▒ g├Ândererek ┼×irin'in ├Âld├╝─č├╝ haberini ula┼čt─▒r─▒r. Ferhat bu ac─▒ haber ├╝zerine elinde tuttu─ču k├╝l├╝ng├╝ havaya atar. D├╝┼čen k├╝l├╝nk Ferhat'─▒n ba┼č─▒na isabet eder ve Ferhat ├Âl├╝r. Ferhat'─▒n ac─▒ haberini alan ┼×irin, korku ve heyecanla olay─▒n ger├žekle┼čti─či kayal─▒─ča gelir. Ferhat'─▒n ├Âld├╝─č├╝n├╝ g├Âr├╝nce ac─▒ya dayanamaz ve kayal─▒ktan yuvarlanarak can verir. Her iki sevgili yuvarland─▒klar─▒ kayal─▒klarda yan yana g├Âm├╝l├╝rler.

Derler ki; her bahar iki mezar ├╝zerinde , biri k─▒rm─▒z─▒ di─čeri de beyaz iki tane g├╝l bitermi┼č. Bu iki g├╝l tam birbirlerine kavu┼čmak ├╝zereyken mezarlar─▒n ortas─▒nda biten bir kara├žalt─▒ bunlar─▒n kavu┼čmas─▒n─▒ engellermi┼č.

When we enter the museum, we are first greeted by the statues of Ferhat and Shirin, which also give the museum its name. The love story of Ferhat and Shirin is told here, but since I have already explained it above, I will just skip it with visuals.

M├╝zeye girdi─čimizde ise bizi ilk ├Ânce m├╝zeye de ismini veren Ferhat ile ┼×irin heykelleri kar┼č─▒l─▒yor. Burada Ferhat ile ┼×irin'in a┼čk hikayesi anlat─▒l─▒yor fakat ben yukar─▒da bunu zaten anlatt─▒─č─▒m i├žin sadece g├Ârsellerle ge├ži┼čtiriyorum.

Then the museum continues with the miniatures of the Mansion Houses and King's Tombs, which are the symbols of Amasya.

Daha sonra Amasya'n─▒n sembol├╝ olan Yal─▒ Evleri ve Kral mezarlar─▒ minyat├╝rleri ile m├╝ze devam ediyor..

When we go a little further, we come across the narration and sculptures of Asl─▒ and Kerem, whose love story is also heard in our culture.
According to the information given, Asl─▒ and Kerem loved each other very much. Their love story became so famous that it was travelling from tongue to tongue. One day Asl─▒ and Kerem got married and during the wedding, a monk living in that neighbourhood cast a spell on Kerem. Kerem and Asl─▒, who were tired during the wedding, returned home. Kerem unbuttoned his shirt to take it off, but the buttons buttoned themselves again. Kerem was tired after trying this a few times and drew an "Ah!". Meanwhile, Kerem started to burn with the fire spreading from his mouth. This time Asl─▒ gave water to Kerem, but the fire flared up even more with the water. In a few minutes Kerem was burnt to ashes and Asl─▒'s hair was ignited from Kerem's ashes and Asl─▒ was burnt to death.

Biraz daha ilerledi─čimizde k├╝lt├╝r├╝m├╝zde de a┼čk hikayeleri dilden dile dola┼čan Asl─▒ ile Kerem anlat─▒m─▒ ve heykelleriyle kar┼č─▒la┼č─▒yoruz.
Verilen bilgiye g├Âre Asl─▒ ile Kerem birbirlerini ├žok seviyorlarm─▒┼č. A┼čklar─▒ o kadar me┼čhur olmu┼č ki dilden dile dola┼č─▒yormu┼č. Bir g├╝n Asl─▒ ile kerem evlenmi┼č ve d├╝─č├╝n s─▒ras─▒nda o civarlarda ya┼čayan bir ke┼či┼č, Kerem'e b├╝y├╝ yapm─▒┼č. D├╝─č├╝n s─▒ras─▒nda yorgun d├╝┼čen Kerem ile Asl─▒ evlerine d├Ânm├╝┼čler. Kerem g├Âmle─čini ├ž─▒karmak i├žin d├╝─čmelerini ├ž├Âz├╝yor fakat d├╝─čmeler sonra kendi kendine tekrar ilikleniyormu┼č. Kerem bunu birka├ž defa denedikten sonra yorgun d├╝┼čm├╝┼č ve bir "Ah!" ├žekmi┼č. Bu s─▒rada kerem a─čz─▒ndan yay─▒lan ate┼čle yanmaya ba┼člam─▒┼č. Bu sefer Asl─▒, Kerem'e su vermi┼č fakat suyla ate┼č daha da fazla alevleniyormu┼č. Birka├ž dakika i├žinde Kerem K├╝l olmu┼č ve Kerem'in k├╝llerinden Asl─▒'n─▒n sa├žlar─▒ tutu┼čmu┼č ve Asl─▒ da yanarak can vermi┼č.

Leyla and Majnun
Majnun's real name is Kays. Kays falls in love with Leyla at an early age. This love is so strong that he starts to be called Majnun, which means "crazy". One day, Mecnun's grandfather takes him to Kaaba. Here he asks him to pray to get rid of Leyla's love. But Majnun prays for his love to increase even more. Now everyone and everything appears to him as Leila, and Mecnun turns from the love of Leila to divine love.

Leyla ─░le Mecnun
Mecnun'un as─▒l ad─▒ Kays't─▒r. Kays, k├╝├ž├╝k ya┼člarda Leyla'ya a┼č─▒k olur. Bu a┼čk─▒ o kadar g├╝├žl├╝d├╝r ki art─▒k ona "deli" anlam─▒na gelen Mecnun denilmeye ba┼člar. Bir g├╝n Mecnun'u dedesi Kabe'ye g├Ât├╝r├╝r. Burada Leyla'n─▒n a┼čk─▒ndan kurtulmak dua etmesini ister. Fakat Mecnun a┼čk─▒n─▒n daha da artmas─▒ i├žin dua eder. Art─▒k herkes ve her ┼čey ona leyla olarak g├Âr├╝n├╝r ve Mecnun, Leyla'n─▒n a┼čk─▒ndan ilahi a┼čka y├Ânelir.

In addition, not only the love stories in our culture, but also the famous love stories in the world are exhibited with sculptures in the museum. One of them is Romeo and Juliet.

Ayr─▒ca m├╝zede sadece k├╝lt├╝r├╝m├╝zdeki a┼čk hikayeleri de─čil, d├╝nyadaki me┼čhur a┼čk hikayeleri de heykellerle sergilenmektedir. Bunlardan biri de Romeo ve Juliet.

In addition to these, examples of divine love are also exhibited in the museum. In this exhibition, a technique I have seen for the first time was used. Miniature paintings and sculptures were made in small keyholes. A very nice work has emerged.

Bunlarla birlikte M├╝zede ilahi a┼čk ├Ârnekleri de sergileniyor. Bu sergileme ise ilk defa g├Ârd├╝─č├╝m bir teknik kullan─▒lm─▒┼č. K├╝├ž├╝k anahtar delikleri i├žine minyat├╝r resim ve heykeller yap─▒lm─▒┼č. ├çok ho┼č bir ├žal─▒┼čma ortaya ├ž─▒km─▒┼č.

Finally, you can drink Amasya's special apple tea at the cafe at the exit of the museum. I am sure you will like it.

Son olarak m├╝ze ├ž─▒k─▒┼č─▒ndaki Kafede Amasya'ya has elma ├žay─▒ i├žebilirsiniz. Be─čenece─činize eminim.

Ferhat ile ┼×irin'in hikayesi ├žok ac─▒kl─▒ ger├žekten. K├Ât├╝ insanlar her zaman insanlar─▒n a┼čklar─▒n─▒n ├Ân├╝ne ge├žmeye ├žal─▒┼č─▒yor. Sonu├žta olan yine sevenlere oluyor. Neyse ki modern zamanlarda a┼č─▒klara daha ├žok de─čer veriliyor.

That's a very interesting museum and one learns a lot about your culture and history.

This exhibit looks rather scary though!!!
