Itinerary

We will pick you up from your hotel and go to Afsin Seven Sleepers Complex. Let’s talk about firstly legendary seven sleepers. This seven friends fleeing persecution by the pagan emperor Decius for having converted to christianity during the roman period, seven young men - Yemliha, Mislina, Mekselina, Mernus,Tebernus, Sazenus and Kafestatyus - take refuge in a cafe with their dog, Kitmir. But soldiers erect a wall at the mouth of the cave to trap them inside, and the seven youths end up sleeping here for centuries. Thinking they have slept just one night, they are unaware when they wake up that a very long time has passed. Only when one of the youths leaves the cave to go in search of food, does he realize that everything has changed. Legends are rife regarding the location of the cave of the seven sleepers, a story common to both Christian and Islamic belief. The Afsin Seven Sleepers Complex is located in the town of the same name in Kahramanmaras province. This complex, dedicated to the seven friends, was built near a cave on a rocky outcrop known as Ashab al-Kahf, which has been regarded as sacred since antiquity. As the Quran tells us, not long after their reawakening the friends who had slept for years in the cave died and a mosque (church) was built next to the cave mouth by those who had witnessed the incident. After the end of the tour return the hotel. We hope your tour was a memorable one and we look forward to seeing you in the future on another TravelShop Booking Tour.
