Legends: There are many myths about Ağrı, a cultural bridge. “Kerem and Aslı”, which is the subject of stories, stories and poems dating from the depths of the present day, are the ones who have seen each other and fell in love with the “Keşiş Bahçesi” between East Bayezid and İshak Paşa Palace. “Kerem”, which can not reach “Aslı”, gets caught with an “Ah” pulled ash. The “Aslı” waiting for days at the beginning of this pheasant is swept up with an ashtray and the burning ashes mix with each other.
It is expressed in the “Torah” which is changed by the Jewish clerics that the ship of Nahu is descended to Mount Ararat (Ararat mountain). It is clearly stated that in the 44th verse of the Qur’an-i Kerimin Hud, which is validated by Allahu taala, the ship of Hazrat al-Nuh had descended to the “Cudi Mountain”. Despite this clear statement, it is not appropriate for this verse to say that the ship of Noah’s Prophet arrived another time. The location of Mount Cudi is controversial. Mosul, Al-Jazeera, Damascus, Nusaybin and Amid (Diyarbakir) have been called. There is no evidence as there are no mountains of Agri. There are other secret activities under the work of searching the ship of Hazrat al-Noah in Mount Ararat. The bad intentions of Christian imperialism and foreign Armenians are secret. As a matter of fact, six years after the taking of Hazret-i-Isa Allahu taala to the heaven of heaven, moral virtue, virtue, honor and chastity mother died Hazrat al-Meryem in Jerusalem. The Christian imperialism, who wants to show Anatolia as a Christian country, as it is in Mubarak Kabi Jerusalem and this issue is clearly stated in the Islamic sources (in his works), has made Ephesus a religious center, based on a woman’s dream. There is no connection between Ephesus and Hazret-i Meryem, and there is no interest between Mount Ararat and the ship that survived the Noah Tufanı. From Noah’s Tuff; From the Sumerian “Gilgamesh Epic” to the epics of the Hopi Indians in America, all ancient legends are mentioned.
The ancient Turks claim that the ship of Hazrat al-Nuh is in the Altay Mountains, in Uludag, in the Hindu Veda (in religious books), in the Himalayas, in the ancient Greeks in Parnassus, in the Assyrians Nizir Mountain, and in Christians and Jews in Ağrı Dağ. The Arabs, “Haris” to Mount Ararat; They would say “Croesus” to the little Agri mountain.
