Cemetery (Graveyard) Tours in Istanbul



Cemetery ( Graveyard ) Tours in Istanbul

Cemeteries in Turkish cities were originally made on the outskirts of the cities, so that as cities expanded, the grave yards became part of the inner city landscape. Some ancient cities are thought of as necropolis, having streets of tombs, though much has been destroyed by time and the progress of people. The head stones are mostly arabic - many have a shell or flower shape on top for a female burial - while a turban or fez shape is for male.

Idea : Our staff will first meet you in our art gallery or in our meeting point and first gives you general information of istanbul, cemetaries and religious procedures and ceremonies in Turkey, then by walking or using public transportation we will take you to the Ottoman cemeteries and the Sultan Tombs around Sultanahmet and Beyazit area. After that we went to one of the biggest and historical cemetery in the Eyup area to see the local Tombs in Eyup, Golden Horn. Tours run everyday.
