Photographer's Note

Esrefoglu Mosque, is certainly the most important monument of Beysehir, a small town in the lake region. This fine monument is surmounted with a flat-roofed stone cone in typical Seljukite style, but it's main attract comes from the wooden pillars which sustain it. The mosque is a remarkable state of preservation when one remembers that it was built in medieval times, at the end of the 13th century.
I was there at an early hour, when the Imam opened it's doors, and after looking around for some time, I started to take pictures inside the empty mosque when to my dismay, a busload a female visitors came in. This was a tour, and soon their guide asked them to sit and listen to the history of the mosque. I approached gently with my tripod, but I was discovered by this girl who was more interested with the TV reporter she probably thought I was, than with the legend. The group proved that I was wrong to be disappointed in the first place.
