Hz. Pir Seyh Saban-i Veli Kulliyesi

Reviewed By Mustafa C - Istanbul, Turkey

Ankara çevreyolundan mezarlıkların içinden geçerek ulaşılan manevi mekanda, maneviyat gerçekten zirvede. Bulunduğu ortam türbenin içi külliyenin havası hepsi çok muhteşem. En büyük eleştirimde asa suyu ile alakalı olacaktır. Maalesef insanlar çeşmenin arkasında koca yazı ile lütfen dolum yapmayın yazmalarına rağmen ellerinde pet şişelerle dolum yapmaları ve amacı sadece bir bardak su içmek olan bizim kişilerin hakkını gasp etmektedirler, söylemek bile fayda etmiyor ben söylendim ve kızdığımdan dolayı içmeden terk ettim. Bu istisna hariç her şeyi ile mutlaka ziyaret edip dua etmenizdir. Saygılar

Valla Kanyonu Seyir Terasi

Reviewed By Nichola C - Mugla, Turkey

I'm not sure this canyon is worth the trip entailed to get there.
The closest town is Pinarbaşı and the road to the canyon starts on its outskirts. It's a bumpy and dusty 19 kilometre with a lot of rubble road. Fine if you have a four wheel drive.
At the end of the road which took almost an hour and a half to negotiate it's a short twenty minute walk to the viewing point. Mostly down hill there so allow about an hour ten, or twenty for the round trip including viewing time. When we were there people with walking difficulties had completed the walk so I hesitate to say it's not suitable but bear it in mind if your planning on going.
So the view. Average at best. You can see better from the roads through the Kuru Mountains. Even from the metal viewing platform at the top of the steps at a total height of about 600 metres it's nothing to write home about. You can't even really see down to the river running through the canyon properly.
It's supposed to be the second biggest canyon in the world!

Liva Pasa Mansion Ethnography Museum

Reviewed By Helena B - Cape Town Central, South Africa

The Ethnography Museum is located in a beautifully restored Konak and covers three floors. The displays and layout is really good and gives you a feeling of what it must have been like to live in a Konak. You can discover the eating habits,clothes and traditions of the people of Kastamonu and just get a good insight into their cultural and spiritual life. Everything is in excellent condition and entrance fee is minimal.

Kasaba Koyu Mahmut Bey Camii

Reviewed By Turkishguide - United States

One of the few forest type mosque of Anatolia. In the middle of nowhere , this 14.C mosque has a unique architecture. Interior has not been restorated , so it is very original except the carpets. I wish they kept the old carpets. One of my favorite detail is the new editions for the woman. As the population increased they added balconies for extra praying space. Make sure by some local products from village outside the mosque . I loved the plumb paste!
