What’s the secret of the name black (black means kara in Turkish)? Ever since I was a child, I wondered where the name Ankara came from. Because I was a Karahisar villager from my father’s side. I was born in Ankara. I used to think why is everything named with a word that evokes darkness like Black. Sumerians call themselves “karabaş” (Karabaş means monk in Christian). The Qur’an also begins with the combination of the letters Ka and Ra.

We were told in schools that the Egyptians who attacked Anatolia and left their anchors behind was were the word came from as they were fleeing Ankara. However, which army would carry all the heavy ship parts  hundreds of miles  but leave the anchors behind. After all there is no body of water surrounding Ankara.  Apparently, this story was one of those stories that were made up to darken a fact.

“The word” Anka-Ra ” … means the spirit of Ra (light) or its reflection… the Phoenix also means the bird of the Holy Spirit.”

Some words are derived from the word kara (black) meaning the Holy Spirit in Turkish.

Character, that is,” …who acts like “or” … who acts like”… When” Su “came as a suffix, for example,” sukarita “as in the word,” right“,” Good Behavior ” revealed the meaning. Some scholars attribute the word caritas to the Greek term cha ris, and understand it as “gifted”, “intelligent”, “the person whom God bestowed high virtues upon him”.

A scientist named George Smith read his name from Sumerian cuneiform writing as a Kara Kardaş, but I think not everyone agrees… Rev. Sayee evaluated cuneiform writing in the form of Kara Mu Radas. It means “God Muradas or Bel’in hâ dimi”… this reading does not seem meaningful… but Sayee’s assessment of the word “land” in the sense of subservient is interesting…Kara means subservient or “servant” … or the person who raises the name of God… who reigns for the purpose of God… who raises his will and message … I am committed to Kara, and my goal is Kara. My aim is to spread the name of Allah and to provide order in the world.

We see the word Kara in the Rig Veda, India’s holy scripture. It means “successful moment.”.. Kara means abhika or “effective use of the time zone called moment” … in the sense that The Sun and Indra fight each other for Land, Heaven and Earth … or Kara means “to help those in need”… the instant reunion of the “father” with his daughter, who is of the divine nature “sunset” … that is, monotheism… Kala, Kara or Abhika means the same thing… pointing to time… to the first time that being was created… to Heyulâ-i Evvel… to the first time that moment was “created all of a sudden”… to the first time that God created the universe.…

There is a word Om-Kara. A sacred word in the Indian language… a sacred voice… or a sacred icon … refers to the “inner soul” (to human soul) named Atman-Osman or the “Divine Reality” (to God) named Brahman. This word appears immediately at the beginning or end of the sacred texts of the Indians. You begin to read the farewells as Om Kara, and when you end the reading, you are always attesting with the word Om-Kara. Om-Kara is also read in the form of AUM-Kara or Om-Hari-Om. It means Aum’un A’sı A-Kara, U’su U-Kara and M’si Mâ-Kara… Meanings; in the sense of creation, protection, dissolution and surrender… a kind of chant… a plunge into deep reality or a foundation of “being”… these are called “mantra” in Latin. They put on YouTube an example of this kind of mantra that purports to relieve pain, sadness and grief… it takes more than three hours … after ten minutes you can sleep… maybe you can think of listening to capture reality, understand the truth, or dive into a deep contemplation… OOM-Hari-Oom… Aum-Kara Oym… I am AYM’ Kara … Ay’em Kara … I am carrying Kara’s soul…

Tirsan-Kara another concept is Tirsan-Kara (Tirthan-Kara )… a status that is very difficult to access… the title given to people who have become “fully enlightened” i.e. “Insan-i Kamil” (perfect human being). Even before the 2000s, there are people called Tirsan-Kara. The prophet in Mesopotamia. They were called Tirsan-Kara in the land of Abraham and the Indian Land… those who built the bridge between “Beyond Death” and “life”… or those who built “passage places”… who helped people cross the “ocean of pain”… Tirsan-Kara were the prophets of Buddhism and also the emerging religion of Canism, the people of a holy person… members of the religion of Canism considered them prophets… but they have no place in our faith… Ma-Havira, the founder of Canism, was believed to be the twenty-fourth and last Tirsan-Kara. Tirsan-Karalar and constantly chanting him. Tirsan-Kara is believed to be taken from The Hindu tradition of the Tirsan-Kara philosophy, which can liberate the soul of the person who broke away from the material world and reached Nirvana, and is also related to Krishna, the word Tirsan-Kara is written in Latin in the form of Tirthan-Kar or Tirthan-Kara. Hünkar has developed a distinctive black philosophy, unlike the Indian World, Middle Eastern and Central Asian societies, which are somehow connected to the so-called “Kara” God. The essence is uluhil, but their appearance is quite different from that of other societies… Hâ-Ukara, Hâ-İkara, Atha-Kara, Ha-Kara, İ-kara, U-Kara, E-kara, Ohâya-Kara, Hin-Kara…

The Meaning Of The Word Kara is worship or righteous deeds … Karaka. The person who carries out his religious duties…Karu. Poet. Kari. It means Kara… or Kala… or Kala’s feminine… Kala is time…

We do not know when the name “kara” began to be coined to the Khans, leaders or kings of the black Khans or the Black Kings. There is mention of a leader named Kauravas in the 3200 BC. His ancestors were descended from a lineage nicknamed dry or black. If we read the word Kaura Vas in the form of a black-head, it wouldn’t be very wrong. In the 3000s before the land of Afghanistan and India, if we encounter the word Land-head, then we have to think of Ethiopia, Somalia, corn, Sumerians and Indus Valley as integrated. The famous Bible of the Indians, Muhâverât (communications) or speeches, largely describes the war of this leader, who was called Kara-Baş (The Black-Head) at the time.

Brahma: the creator of the universe or everything… the God who studied Karai for Kerai… The Westerners couldn’t decipher it. I’ll tell you, it means” God reading for land “… or” Avatar, Messenger reading for land, ” … and that’s where his real connection to land comes from. He always wears a dress made of black Antelope skin on his back. Maybe he’s not black-skinned, but he dresses in black, reads Kara to Kera …The embodied state of God on Earth

Karuna Feminine God… the compassionate and Merciful… the holy mother who feeds and raises us… always comforting and loving… forgiving… giving love without distinction… sacrificing, protecting, when necessary… living with this purpose… healing, treating… the owner of the Derman… Karuna, meaning “Karu ana” or Kara ana (ana means Mother)… Karuna is related to the belief in Buddhism that emerged in the 500s BC. They do not have the belief of a “personified God”, but they have managed to create a certain belief system by changing the meaning of the word Karuna. In India, there is an avatar named Krişna who lived in 3000 BC. So, “representative of God” … the incarnation of God on Earth … [1]


Nallıhan is one of the most beautiful districts in the west of Ankara, adjacent to the Black Sea and Bolu. Its former name is Karahisar town.

Nasuh Pasha, who was formerly the governor of Egypt and would later become the Ottoman Vizier, returned to Istanbul from the Ottoman-Iranian treaty, and his horse’s horseshoe was dropped and accommodated at the site of today’s Nallıhan district headquarters. He enjoyed this area of vineyards, gardens and woodland sin a valley and built an inn with forty rooms, a bath and a mosque. Since then, nallıhan district centre has developed and grown here. The people hang on their front door a fallen horseshoe which is thought to be auspicious to express their love and thanks to Nasuh paşaya and the name of the district is called Nallıhan after that day. However, since it is difficult to say this word in the language of the local people, we continue to say it as Nallahan, including the people of the region and US. Salute him for his service to this town, which is my hometown, and for his announcement of his name. On August 5th, which was my birthday, God bestowed upon him the duty of being Vizier of the Ottoman Empire.

Taptuk Emre, who is the student of Ahmed Yesevi; Yunus Emre and his teacher Taptuk Emre ended up in the dervish in the village of this town and spent many years in Nallahan. Other scholars they raised spread to many villages of Nallahan and they have tombs. The tomb of Taptuk Emre’s daughter Bacım Sultan is in the village of Tekke near Bağder.

If the name Nallahan is thought to be N – ALLAH-HAN, It can be read as N (unknown-hidden), ALLAH KHAN. Or it could be thought of as N-ALLAH-AN. God names everything in the most beautiful way.

Hoca Ahmet Yesevi, to Hacı Bektaş Veli:

“You should head to Anatolia (the land of Rome: the country of Rome). There are plenty of sermest friends and facts. The correct signs and sequences rise to Muhammad Ali. They do not know no way. We have dealt with you roman men. ” He sends him to Anatolia.

Of course, there were dervishes in Anatolia before Haci Bektas. Upon them, he was sent as president, Haci Bektas. He compiled, edited and disseminated.

Haci Bektasi Veli raised Taptuk Emre and appointed him to Nallahan.  Then he saw the invasion of Yunus Emre and sent him to Nallahan to Taptuk Emre. Yunus Emre is said to have been carrying wood for 40 years.

Haci Bayram-i Veli refuses the Sultan’s invitation to stay as a disciple of the palace and Edirne people in Edirne, tells him that he wants to stay in Ankara and settles in Ankara.


General Information About My Village

It is 8 km from Eskişehir-Nallıhan road and its distance to the district is 29 km. It has a population of 46. The village took its name from the rather steep rock called “Karahisar Rock”, on which the remains of fortifications were found. The old wooden mosque and minaret in the village, where traditional architecture is preserved, is about to be demolished. The new mosque had been built. It is a forest village.[2]

It is 181 km from Ankara province and 19 km from Nallıhan district. Karahisargölcük village is a village in Nallıhan District, Ankara. The first settlement of the village belongs to the Phrygians in the 4th and 3rd centuries BC.

The territory of the village was officially under Ottoman rule with the conquest of the region (The whole of Nallihan) by the Seljuks, Danishmentians, Candaroğulları and (Osman Bey in part) Orhan Gazi, and as a village connected to Nallihan, Nallihan was first connected to the banner of Bursa ( Bursa was the Ottoman capital) and then to the banner of Ankara with the conquest of Ankara.

They left behind the gardens of Yanislar and Bağman which were fertile gardens (because the region is vineyard and gardening, and there is a rich gentleman at that time, it was called Bagman.) It is known that there were several Armenian families in the area of ” Yanislar” and that there was also a pottery kiln there. Today, only the remains can be seen.

On the present site of the village is a rock in the middle quarter (this rock stands adjacent to our house and lies between its two gardens) carved into Byzantine and Roman rock, the room and its door can easily been seen today. (You can see pictures of this rock below. It is in a crescent and star-shaped form) from here it is understood that the date of the present location of the village goes back to BC. It is among the rumours that a large city is located below the village.

A significant part of the village people were from the  Turkmen-Yörük tribe and the Kayi Boyu Karakeçili tribe of Oguz who founded and settled the village on the orders of Osman Gazi. The village was later settled by several families and again by the order of the Sultan of the period in 1850 and several nomadic families joined the village.

Whereas the caravans and Kings who traded the Silk Road did not use the Bolu-Göynük route, Alexander the Great and the historian Marco Polo used this route ( the Gölpınarı place-Demirköy route of the village of Nallıhan – Karahisar gölcük). The cave carved into the rock in the village and the historical relief font on the door of the village cemetery next to the old King’s tomb at the top of the Rocky Hill can be considered the evidence for this. ( Before Christ, the most competent people in the villages were called Kings ). As we know today, not only is he the king of one country but also of that region, who governs a few hundred people. (like City-states)

The historical sites of the village are the pointed rock in the Yanislar area, the bride rocks (because they resemble the bride regiment), the fishing at Gökçekaya dam, the bastions of the castle when the waters were drawn, the cave carved into the unknown rock when it was made in the village, and the relief writing at the gate (there is a triangular protruding) The Relief of just below the rock monument is a Phrygian period burial chamber measuring 2×2.5 meters, entered by a rectangular door. The burial chamber carved into the Rock has a rectangular plan with a flattened gable arch roof-source 2006 A.E.- the Tomb of the king at the top of the Rocky Hill near the cemetery, which is not known by which time and to whom, has historical Ottoman tombstones inside the cemetery.[3]
