These mirrors on the walls named the bazaar for Aynalı Çarşı.

TO THE BATTLEFIELDS AND THE GALLIPOLI PENINSULA:::::::::::..
On the ferry crossing the strait to the other side.The fortress is named as ''Kilitbahir''.

Kilitbahir(KİLİT=lock,padlock / BAHİR=sea)

WHO HAS EVER DARED TO UTTER SUCH SENTENCES AFTER ONE OF THE BLOODIEST WARS IN THE WORLD?

These are for the Kiwis:

Shots from the battlefields.English cemeteries in the foreground,on the left.

The Anzac Cove










Martyrdom

Martyrdom of Unidentified Soldier.
An unidentified skull of a Turkish soldier was brought back from Australia and buried here.Since then,this cemetery has been representing those thousands of Turkish soldiers who had shed their bloods for their nation.


Turkish F-16s patrolling over the Aegean





The monument of the very first Martyrs.And they were buried just right here.The name of the monument is Settülbahir which means barrier to the sea.

The monument of Sarge Sayyid who carried and loaded about 250kg-weighing cannonball.The cannonball hit the English ship named Ocean.

The French Cemetery
This was a road to perdition to me as the stairs were deadly in such a hot weather, but finally I managed to take some nice photos for advriders.
Climbing up a hill...

Cemetery is there,at the top of a hill.

Am I right?


Moslems fought against Moslems for nothing.This was the war for nothing:(




NAVAL MUSEUM::::::::::::::::..







This ship named as Nusrat played a role as a minelayer and strongly influenced the course of the war.
