Historical Taşköprü Conference on 100 in Beyşehir: 100 in Beyşehir district of Konya. The historic Taşköprü, a symbol of a century celebrated with various activities organized within the scope of year events, was put on the table at a conference.
Selçuk University (SU) Faculty of Letters Department of History Assoc. Dr. Hüseyin Muşmal stated that the Konya Plain Project (KOP), which was realized together with the historical bridge which is called the fertile necklace of the Ottoman Empire, was the biggest and the first irrigation project of the Ottoman Empire.
Assoc. Dr. Muşmal, in his speech at the conference called birlikte Historical Taşköprü in the Year 100 söz at the Teachers' House, mentioned the history of the Konya Plain Project and the history of the site along with the historical bridge.
When the historical Taşköprü was mentioned, it was stated that the Konya Irrigation Project should come to mind immediately and the story of the emergence of this bridge started with it. Dr. Muşmal also talked about his doctoral thesis, documents and studies about the project. Muşmal emphasized in his speech that there is a story of all the structures available on the earth, and that there is a story of the historical Taşköprü, and that the marketing of this story is a very important issue. The cities that have a story are visited and Beyşehir also has a lot of stories. Some of them are mysterious stories, if these stories can be operated well in this city, there is no reason for Beyşehir not to attract tourists. So seriously, European tourists buy stories and go after stories. Of course, the Ottoman daggers had dreams and dreams. But who were the activists, the Ottoman sultans came here, no. However, people who have dreams about this place have mobilized the Ottoman sultan, and such a bridge emerged. We use the bridge only as a symbol. It is the most important symbol of Beyşehir. If you look at the old postcards, they are now lost, but you will see images of the Beysehir bridge and regulator. Eski
Stating that the historical Taşköprü is in the shadow of the historical Eşrefoğlu Mosque in Beyşehir, after all, it is a different kind of water civilization. . Very advantageous, very lucky. One of the most beautiful examples in Anatolia in terms of the regulator, I am not an art historian, but based on the work of art historians, it is possible to see this in the recent Ottoman structures da.
In his speech, Muşmal stated that Konya Plain Irrigation Project was born from very large flood events occurring in Beyşehir Lake. Between 1905-1910, one third of the population of Beyşehir were destroyed due to floods and the associated malaria disease. Although the project, which was born with the idea of ​​taking the water regime of Beyşehir Lake under control, had a very serious cost, Muşmal said that the arms had been rolled up and that Taşköprü was started to be built in 1908 since its construction. 6 was completed in a period of time such as 1914 years to serve and the Konya Plain for the first time from the Beysehir tea began to be transferred to water controlled. Stating that there is a bridge with 8-10 eyes in place before Taşköprü was built, Muşmal emphasized that the contract for the implementation of the Konya Plain Irrigation Project was signed with the effort of the Grand Vizier Ferit Pasha of Aviation, who was serving as the Konya Governor, by emphasizing that it was in ruins. , continued:
Gerekiyor In the literature, this bridge is called the German bridge, but the term tab German bridge e is not what I found to be true. So, why we call it the German bridge, the question mark ıy Do we have to say, this is an Ottoman work, this is very clear. It was designed in the Ottoman period. A project with a great story that took him to Suleiman the Magnificent. We call it fertility necklace. Because it is the largest and the first irrigation project of the Ottoman state and it is one of the fourth largest irrigation projects in the world. A large land is irrigated with this project. Today, this is the source of the products of the people of Konya Plain, the beet and the yield of the people in Çumra. The waters flowing under the bridge here today bring life to the Konya Plain. 1950'li many caravans passed here, a lot of water flowed. And this land has blessed. He gave blessings to Anatolia and Konya plain. Ya
Prof. Dr. Muşmal emphasized that the Konya Plain was not a granary before the historical Taşköprü was built and the KOP was implemented, he added:
Dür At that time, the function of feeding Istanbul belonged to Egypt, the Crimea and the Balkans, and the only reason why the Konya Plain is a granary is Beyşehir Lake. In 1896, in Konya, the first train comes to the station and an opening ceremony is held. In the 1914, the water of the Konya Plain is flowing in a controlled manner, and now the Konya plain and the city is a granary. Until then, all of the people make subsistence production, they are not able to carry it, it is very difficult to sell. And most of the land that they can use already is barren, mud, swamp. Here Beysehir Lake, Konya and the plain of the project that saves the owner of the Lake Beysehir and Beysehir Taşköprüsü Konya is the fertile neck of the plain. For this reason, we bring together these two sides, bringing together two sides of Konya and bearing the memory of Sultan Abdul Hamid, seeing the original documents as one of the emotional. Perhaps Abdülhamit Khan was dethroned before this project took place, the constitutional monarchy was declared but if he had known that he would give blessings to the Konya plain as a sultan who had dreamed of the inauguration of the project, his eyes would have lived. Beytehir is also the regulator of the bridge and the 1980 was registered by the Cultural and Natural Assets Protection Board. Beyşehir's most beautiful irrigation structure and as one of the most beautiful regulators of Anatolia has taken its place in history.
