Buying wholesale sheets and towels
I have been told that Bursa is the place to go and buy good quality sheets and towels. I am arriving tomorrow, Thursday. I need a large quantity so am interested in whole sale. Where should i go?
Re: Buying wholesale sheets and towels
I cannot think of the market name, but if you are staying at a hotel, they should be able to tell you.
The best large volume markets for these are about ~20 minutes north of Bursa, just off the highway that links Bursa and Yalova.
The area does have fantastic cotton fabrics (sheets, towels, robes, etc.)
Travel Tips for Bursa
Visit 'Mahfel-Mado Coffee...
Visit 'Mahfel-Mado Coffee house' in 'setbaþý' in the morning for breakfast and for ice-cream in the evening. A restored building, traditional ottoman house, hanging over the 'gökdere' valley.
Unfortunately no beer served, not a place for me but nice and calm place to rest for a while.
Churches and Synagogues..
Bursa is one of the provinces which has been the cradle of a number of civilizations and religious from the pre-Christian era to the present. There are many Christian, Jewish and Muslim structures still standing and now under government protection. Of the 17 church councils so important for the Christian faith convened between 324 and 1563, eight of them were held in Turkey and the 1st and 7th were held in Iznik. Iznik is one of 8 different pilgrimage points in Turkey and the most important.
Geruþ Synagogue Selim II had the synagogue built at the beginning of the 16th century. It is located on Arap Þükrü Street. The Jews exiled from Spain at the end of the 14th century and were put on galleons sent by the Ottoman Empire and given refuge. The first groups were settled in Bursa and this synagogue was built for them. The fact that this synagogue was called Gerush, which means 'driven away' in Hebrew, is very symbolic of their suffering.
The Geruþ Synagogue is still in excellent shape today. It is well-maintained and open for worshippers. The medallions found on either side of the Ehal Akodesh cabinet, where the Torah is kept, have Hebraic inscriptions recording the construction date and the name of the master builder. There is no other inscription showing any other details of construction.
