Beyazid II Külliye Health Museum is in Edirne, Turkey. A külliye is an Ottoman architectural concept that designates a complex of buildings centered around a mosque and Bayezid II Külliye was built in 1488 by the Ottoman sultan Bayezid II (reigned 1481–1512).
The complex contains a hospital, and it remained in operation for four hundred years as of 1488 until the Russo-Turkish War (1877-1878). The hospital was especially notable for its treatment methods for mental illnesses which included the use of music, water sound and scents.
The historic hospital was incorporated into the structure of Trakya University, also based in Edirne, in 1993 and converted into a “Health Museum”, a museum dedicated to the history of medicine and health matters in general, in 1997. The museum was awarded the European Council’s “Museum Award” in 2004.

I am pretty much a self taught photographer. I became interested in photography in the last few years. I enjoy taking pictures of flowers, nature scenes, ancient monuments.
