It is obvious that the importance of prayer has a big role in our religion.

For this , on Sunday we will meet at dawn prayer in İshak Paşa Mosque. We will go there on foot again and at the end of this activity we will give vegetable soup and apple.
Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
In third category, On Sunday for this activity, starting from Hacı Veli Ağa street, Elektrik Street, Tabakhane Street and Bedesten Street will be closed for the cars.
