Discover the Hidden Gems of Edirne with our Private Baha'i Holy Places Tour from Istanbul!
The Private Baha'i Holy Places Tour From Istanbul is an exclusive tour that takes you on a spiritual journey to the sacred Baha'i sites in Edirne. We will pick you up from your hotel in Istanbul and drive to Edirne, which is located about three hours away from Istanbul. Along the way, you can enjoy the scenic beauty of the Turkish countryside.
The first stop on our tour will be the House of Baha'u'llah in Edirne, which is a significant pilgrimage site for Baha'is from all over the world. This house is where Baha'u'llah, the founder of the Baha'i Faith, stayed during his exile in Edirne between 1863-1868. It is now a shrine and museum that displays many of Baha'u'llah's personal belongings, as well as information about his life and teachings.
Next, we will visit the Izzet Aga Garden, which is a beautiful garden located near the House of Baha'u'llah. This garden is a peaceful oasis that provides a serene environment for meditation and reflection.
After visiting the Izzet Aga Garden, we will proceed to the House of Baha'u'llah (Riza Bey), which is located in the center of Edirne. This house was where Baha'u'llah stayed during the last days of his exile in Edirne. It is now a private residence and not open to the public, but we can still view it from the outside and appreciate its historical significance.
Our final stop will be the Selimiye Mosque, which is a masterpiece of Ottoman architecture and a UNESCO World Heritage site. This mosque was built by the famous Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan and is considered one of his greatest works. We can explore the mosque's beautiful interior and admire its intricate decorations and calligraphy.
