What are you going to do

This trip is a relaxing & historical trip it’s an aspect to how the shores of Anatolian Side of Istanbul looks like.
First of all we will pass by Mecidiye Pavilion, its one of the oldest pavilions of Istanbul and is located in the region of Beykoz Pier The construction of the pavilion started in 1845 by the Egyptian Governor Mehmed Ali Pasha as a gift to Sultan Abdülmecid was continued after his death in 1849 by his son. Historical records indicate that Sultan Abdulaziz organized wrestling games in the Beykoz meadow during his stay in Mecidiye Pavilion and went hunting in the close hunting grove in Tokatköy
We will be continuing to Joshua's hill (NABI YUSHA MOSQUE AND TOMB)
Which is located on the highest hill of Istanbul the area contain Yusha Mosque and the tomb of prophet Yusha, Since ancient period this place has been accepted as a holy location many various civilizations established their sanctuaries and temples such as Zeus Temple (later turned into a church named Hagios Michael) to pray surrounding here
It is believed that the interesting mausoleum buried here belongs to Prophet Yusha who was very close to Prophet Moses and took his place as the leader of the Bani Israil after his death according to Koran, he is also known as Joshua servant of the Lord in the Bible , Additionally that tomb attracts the people with its 17 meters in length
Yoros Castle locally known as Yoros Kalesi lies on a hill next to the village of Anadolu Kavağı and was probably first built during the reign of the Byzantine Emperor Michael VIII Palaiologos in the 2nd part of the 13th century, the castle has an irregular ground plan with an upper and lower castle. The area of the lower castle is still military terrain which proofs of the strategic importance of the location
At present Yoros Castle can be visited but only the exterior of the upper castle, entrances to its interior are closed off with metal gates, Locals go to Anadolu Kavağı to visit Yoros Castle & to enjoy the view at the restaurants surrounding the pier as the castle offers fabulous views of the Bosphorus and Yuşa Tepesi (Joshua’s Hill) & a view of where the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea meet
