Turkish MinaretThe guide was updated:
THE MINARET IS CLOSED DUE TO RECONSTRUCTION: May-Oct 2017.
The northernmost Minaret of the Ottoman Empire can be found in Eger, built in 1596. The Minaret is a monument for practicing the Muslim religion from where the muezzin called believers to prayers five times a day. The Minaret is a 14m square based 40m high tower, in which 97 steps lead to the top. After a pleasant walk, there is another authentic phenomenon of Turkish culture: The Pasha’s Tent. It is a good idea to tuck into original Turkish coffee, tea and sweets here.
