A Journey To The Past: Beypazari

In the 17th century the Ottoman traveller Evliya Çelebi wrote that Beypazarı lays in two valleys and consisted of 3011 two-storey houses with timber covered adobe walls. He said that the town had 70 schools, seven hans and hamams and 600 shops, and a weekly market where all kinds of fine and valuable commodities were sold. In 1884  a fire destroyed thousand of houses in the town, which were rebuilt by craftsmen from Beypazarı and Safranbolu in the late 19th century. Today with its over 3000 houses and two-centuries old buildings in the town centre, Beypazarı is one of the unspoilt Otoman towns in Turkey. The old quarter is under conservation, and the exteriors of 500 of these picturesque houses have already been restored. Works on the others is continuing.
