Nomad Museum of Candir Village


Nomad Museum of Candir Village



Çandır, the village beyond the Kaunos archeological site, has quite some inhabitants of yörük descent. Until 1945 these "walking people" lived a nomadic existence, rearing and herding sheep and cattle. Then the nomads received land from the state and settled down in the village of Çandır. The nomads built mud brick houses, of which a well-preserved one can still be seen if you turn left towards the port of Çandır at the end of the paved village road. 


Another mud house of which the walls have been plastered can be seen next to the Nomad Museum run by the elderly Karamanlı  yörük villager, Mehmet Varol. It is the house where he was raised as a young boy and grew up Interested in culture and history -Mehmet Varol used to work at Kaunos-, he started collecting nomad rugs, horse saddles, donkey bags, clothing, pots &  pans, and the tools and appliances used in and around the house and yard. Yörük are known to make beautiful kilims and each clan had its own motifs. The ones from Karaman have lively colours, which hardly fade in the sun, no matter how often they have been washed. 



The museum is a tribute to the old ways and customs of the yörük population, started so that these do not end up in oblivion. The museum makes a nice excursion in combination with the Kaunos City Wall walk and the niche tombs at the port of Çandır. 


You can sit down for a chat and a drink after your walk.
