Ottoman Empire

OTTOMAN EMPIRE

Even though it was tried throughout the ages, taking Istanbul from the Byzantines, where it was part of Little Hagia Sophia, was given to Turks, Mehmet, a descendant of Osman from the ancient Oguz families, Kayı  Tribe.

We will also mention Mehmet II becouse Little Hagia Sophia   was converted into a mosque by him

Son Beyazid II.

This church of the Byzantines and the buildings around it had been devastated and plundered by the Westerners, who lived under the same empire for centuries, belonging to the same religion and fought shoulder to shoulder together (1204-1261).

Although the Imperial found its strength to reconstruct the city from time to time but  time did not behaved to Constantinapolis well.

As for Mehmet II; He met the throne at a very young age, He received a good education, He was able to apply His education theoretically in His life and caused an age to close and an age to open.

He knew what geography his grandparents were.

He also looked at what they raised, what they were selling, how the people were living

He was also aware of the social problems in the world

He was a master of politics at this age

In short, He had a lot of knowledge such as sciences such as mathematics, geography ,history, contemporary or ancient foreign languages, and sociology.

He ruled a faithful army and a navy not afraid of the seas.

With faith, Mind prevailed . In 1453 Turks conquested to Istanbul.

Although some historians make an analogy that does not suit countless suits for Turks, we know that neither the language nor religion of anyone was touched after the conquest.

The structures that could not be reconstructed during the Byzantine period were foundated and protected by laws.

In terms of religious institutions that shape world politics, the rules of belief and conscience to be so intimate with material values ​​have been determined. More innovations have been signed.

It is not unreasonable to think that the reason why the Western world turned towards science was the greatest result of this lethal coup of Mehmet II.

All the sacred places were no longer in the hands of the Westerners.

If it is necessary to make a separate space here, the architects of these structures hoped that the places they built in the future will be restored with good hands and strong minds.

They were lucky because Sinan, the greatest architect of the era, came to the stage of history by educating and gaining experience at work like his colleagues, away from the splendor at the same time, by building structures worthy of kings and sultans or repairing the old ones.

This is how he met with Little Hagia Sophia. Sinan also repaired the Hagia Sophia, which was damaged.

While repairing Hagia Sophia, it has survived such structures, such as Little Hagia Sophia, which came from the hands of the same architects, and reflected its own genius.

We think He also studied Little Hagia Sophia a lot.

The plan He has implemented for Hagia Sophia has made its feel safe for 500 years.

Of course, we know that human beings are desperate against the power of nature,

And they believe that the structure they built will eventually be returned to God, with everything.

The most famous architect of the Ottoman period, Architect Sinan or Great Sinan also lived during the Magnificent Suleiman, when the entire Ottoman Empire reached the widest limits.

Even the magnificent Sultan Suleyman, who does not receive orders from anyone other than God, is powerless and needs his ideas before Sinan.

Science Class was a highly valued institution in the Ottoman period. Although it is useful to keep it up-to-date and in its hands, it is so difficult and difficult to be able to catch it and improve it once it breaks.

It has made history repeat.

World History is filled with countless World Wars . But when we came to 1914, the world actually entered the First World War only as a name, and the Ottomans were defeated from the war which we could not count.

The Empire lost both this war and Istanbul, 4 years after the start of the war.

Istanbul was brought back to the Turks by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, whose family was also a Commander of Macedonian Turks. October 6, 1922.
