Yunus Emre

Yunus Emre
Yunus Emre was a Turkish poet and Sufi mystic. He has exercised immense influence on Turkish literature, from his own day until the present. Because Yunus Emre is, after Ahmet Yesevi and Sultan Walad, one of the first known poets to have composed works in the spoken Turkish of his own age and region rather than in Persian or Arabic, his diction remains very close to the popular speech of his contemporaries in Central and Western Anatolia. This is also the language of a number of anonymous folk-poets, folk-songs, fairy tales, riddles (tekerlemeler), and proverbs.

Like the Oghuz Book of Dede Korkut, an older and anonymous Central Asian epic, the Turkish folklore that inspired Yunus Emre in his occasional use of tekerlemeler as a poetic device had been handed down orally to him and his contemporaries. This strictly oral tradition continued for a long while.

Following the Mongolian invasion of Anatolia facilitated by the Sultanate of Rûm's defeat at the 1243 Battle of Köse Dağ, Islamic mystic literature thrived in Anatolia, and Yunus Emre became one of its most distinguished poets. Poems of Sultan Yunus Emre despite being fairly simple on the surface evidence his skill in describing quite abstruse mystical concepts in a clear way. He remains a popular figure in a number of countries, stretching from Azerbaijan to the Balkans, with seven different and widely dispersed localities disputing the privilege of having his tomb within their boundaries. 


Yunus Emre was loved by many people and he was a admirable person who contributed many values to the establishment of Turkish culture and civilization. There are many different idea about where Yunus Emre was born, lived and died.

Yunus Emre's official mausoleum is located at the Ziyarettepe which is in Kirsehir province, in Ulupinar Town, 1267 m height. Every year Yunus Emre commemoration week is held by Kirsehir and Aksaray Governorships on the second week of September.

There are rectangular windows with iron fences inside the arches of square planned stone tomb's east and south walls. The inner cover of the tomb has a ceiling shape like ceiling getting narrower when it goes higher. The top of this ceiling cover is protected by a square pyramid stone conical hat from outside and it is left as a square planned hole.


This suffering house is nearly 250 m far on the south of cenotaph which at the hill and it is assumed that after Yunus Emre who left world works behind and close himself to pray in this suffering house, dervishes also come together here to praying.


In 1971 Yunus Emre was commemorated, introduced by UNESCO and his poems translated into many languages and his lines traveled all over the world. The number of graves attributed to Yunus Emre is total 16; 13 inside the country borders (Kirsehir, Eskisehir, Isparta, Manisa, Karaman, Bolu, Erzurum, Aksaray, Bursa, Afyon, Balikesir, Konya) and 3 of them in Azerbaijan. And this is evidence for how much Yunus Emre was loved, adopted and can not shared by people.
