Erikli Baba Dervish Lodge

On the other hand, the Byzantine remains in its garden leads one to believe that it had been home to a religious site here before Ottoman Period as well. It remained popular among janissaries until Sultan Mahmud II eradicated the janissary group and demolished the lodge. However, after a short period, Perişan Baba who has a significant position in Bektaşi culture has revived it. Yet, after dervish lodges and monasteries were closed down in 1925, it started to be used as residence, but then got abandoned. It has been reconstructed to keep original character in 1993 by Erikli Baba Cultural Association.
