Turkish Delights – Haji Bektash Veli Complex (2 of 2)

The Haji Bektash Veli complex is an Alevi Islamic Cultural Monument located in Hacıbektaş, Türkiye. It was built in the 13th century as a center for the Sufi saint Haji Bektash Veli. After his death, his mausoleum was built here. Atatürk’s 1925 ban on all dervish orders caused the exodus of the Bektashi Order to Albania, and the complex was closed for religious use. The Haji Bektash Veli complex was later declared a museum in 1964. All photos taken with the Nikon Z6 and 14-30mm f/4 or 24-200mm f/4-6.3 lens. Processed using Photoshop CC and either Nik Collection’s Color or Silver Efex Pro.
