Church of Thecla - Saint Thecla's Shrine

Aya Thecla Church ( Aya Tekla,  Hagia Thekla )

Saint Thecla's Shrine and Church of Thecla

The pilgrimage site is dedicated to "The Acts of Paul and Thecla", Thecla died in Selucia (modern Silifke). According to the "Life and Miracles of Thecla" (444/5 c.), Thecla did not die but instead descended into the ground of Selucia.

Saint Thecla's Shrine and Church of Thecla

Saint Thekla lived in the 1 st century AD was a pupil and also a fellow of Saint Paulus one of the most important figures of Christianity.She leaves Konya and arrives in Silifke with influence of Paulus's sermons, and lives in the Meryemlik region at about 1.5 km west of Silifke city center.In 460-470 AD. The basilica possibly devoted to Thekla became one of the most popular centres of Christianity.

Thecla's shrine was a major pilgrimage site in late antiquity, and was visited by Gregory of Nazianzus in 374 upon the death of his mother.

Aya Thecla Church ( Aya Tekla,  Hagia Thekla )

Today when visitors make their way to Ayatekla on the Meryemlik hill outside of Silifke, they can see the remains of a ruined apse and the cave church of Thecla. Both structures have undergone excavation. Remains of other structures are scattered around the hillside, although not all these have been excavated.

Here I am posting two photos from inside the church. And also a video that shows outside of the shrine.

Fishing by Boat in the Bosphorus

Fishing Tours in Istanbul
Amateur fishing enthusiasts want to fish more and this desire increased the number of fishing tours in almost every region of Turkey over the last year.

Actually, the situation in the Bosphorus is different. As you know, everybody comes to mind when it comes to fishing in the Bosphorus  catching horse mackerel on various shores of the Bosphorus with 5-meter rods.

In this picture in Istanbul, renting a boat and sailing to different points of the Bosphorus now included discovering new pastures and new fishing methods. Recently, at many points, more, more fishing tours, captains who rent their boat for fishing have been seen. You can search from both the Anatolian Side and the European Side, from many points in Istanbul, and you can find boat offers and captains on www.tekneveyat.com website for fishing on the Bosphorus.

Fishing in Istanbul

There are some points to be aware of for those who go on a fishing tour by boat in the Bosphorus. First of all, although long telescopic rods used on the shore can be used on the boat, this will start to tire you after 15 minutes. Because you are already on the boat and you do not have to throw it away or in a certain area. On the other hand, since the current is too much, the weight of the bullets to be used sometimes reaches 300 grams. For this reason, it will be more practical to use boat reeds or boat reeds (or jig rods) ranging from 120 cm to 200 cm for boat fishing in the Bosphorus. It will be useful to choose the hard ones among the very delicate tip of these straws and the hard ones.

The reel to be used from the boat is as light as possible but at the same time strong. Because 200-300 g of weight and current strength will definitely tire you. However, if you have a machine on hand and you do not always go to the throat by boat, the machine in your hand can also be evaluated.

What is your target fish is important when fishing from the boat in the Bosphorus. The team you will use should be determined accordingly. You can use fake baits and hoes for fish such as horse mackerel, bluefish, bonito, and fresh or live baits such as garfish or horse mackerel are also important for methods such as long fishing lines, which are often used for bluefish.

The Weirdest Creatures of The Oceans

The Most Interesting Creatures in the Oceans

The two most mysterious places in the world are the sky and the oceans. These two facts still have places and secrets that cannot be reached even with today's technology. The oceans that separate Kıt'a from each other cover a large part of the earth. The oceans, which are home to millions of creatures, whose existence is still unknown, is the home of many interesting creatures. These oceans are so full of secrets that most of these secrets are hidden where even light cannot reach. Until this time, only 5% of the oceans were discovered and very interesting creatures were encountered despite such a small discovery. Now let's talk about these interesting ocean creatures.

The largest of this octopus, found 65 meters deep in the ocean, weighs exactly 272 kilograms. The length of a single arm of the octopus, whose scientific name is Enteroctopus doflein, reaches 9 meters. Giant Pacific Octopus, being the largest octopus in the world, this creature lives on average 3-5 years. It is a reddish brown octopus with large heads, covered and eight arms, and it is a carnivorous species. The most interesting feature is that although it is so large, it can escape through an opening as much as its beak.

This interesting fish species can live in all oceans and prefers warm and temperate waters. The biggest shovelnose guitarish ever seen is 7.6 meters tall and weighs 272 kilos. However, researchers say that paddle fish can grow up to 11 meters. This interesting creature, which cannot be viewed as much as it lives at a depth of 300-1000 meters, is the largest bony fish in the world. Even though the red extension from the head to the tail gives a very nice appearance to the fish, it has also caused rumours of the sea monster to appear. Shovelnose guitarfish is definitely a must see creature of the oceans.

FACELESS CUSK ( Faceless Fish )
This interesting creature, which Australian scientists come across 4000 meters deep in the ocean, seems to have no face when viewed from the outside. The fish, which can never be distinguished from its eyes and mouth, actually has a mouth and eyes. The eyes of the fish, whose mouth is hidden under the head, are too small to be seen. It is stated that the fish with a length of 40 cm was last seen 150 years ago. Faceless Cusk fish is a true legend of mysterious Oceans.

Manta Stingray, which is the biggest known stingray species in the world, also called ghost stingray is one of the most interesting creatures living in the ocean. The creature, which has a mouth like a huge cave, a trunk that resembles a number of three, and lobes like a shovel in front of the mouth, reaches 7 meters. They come up to 1000 meters depth according to the sea level. It is a carnivorous animal. It filters what you eat. Manta Ray feed on crabs and shrimps by eating. They do not have aggressive structures and are very gentle animals.

Japanese Spider Crab is the largest crab in the oceans. a crab with 10 legs, each of which is 3-4 meters, living at depths of about 600 meters of the ocean. It can reach up to 20 kilograms of weight. It is stated that the crab, whose scientific name is Macrochcheira kaempfer, lives only in the Pacific Ocean. The Japanese spider crab is a kind of scavenger and feeds on crustaceans and dead fish at the bottom of the ocean.

The Scariest Fish in The World
The scary teeth of this creature, whose body looks as if it is stuck from the sides, is one of the first features that stand out. The most important function of these teeth is that it kills fish larger than itself. Fangtooth Fish body is covered with spiky scales and fishbones, vary in color from black to dark brown in adults and become light gray when young. Although it is seen that it has reached a depth of 5000 meters, they mostly live in 2000 meters. Its outward jaw makes it easy to catch shrimps and squid. Thanks to its big heads, it also has the feature of eating big fish. Instead of ambushing the prey, this interesting creature, actively seeking its prey, detects the movements of its prey using the lateral openings in its body.
