• Witness a historical Turkish festival this Spring in Manisa

    2012-02-29

    Sometimes when travelers visit smaller towns abroad, they can immerse themselves in the fascinating local cultures and get a real sense of the spirit of a country. For instance, baby boomers looking for an unusual festival to participate in on their next adventure travel trip could journey to Manisa, Turkey, to check out Mesir happening this March.

    The legend behind Mesir comes from a story about an Ottoman sultan whose wife became ill. One of the royal shamans developed a special medicine made from 41 different herbs and spices that magically cured the sick woman, and the mixture is still distributed today, according to the event's website. Festivities have grown to incorporate many other activities and celebrations, including beauty contests, delicious feasts and cultural demonstrations of dance and song. Guests are welcome to attend the events and learn about the customs carried out in this town for generations.

    While in Manisa, there are plenty of other interesting things to see and do. According to Yahoo Travel, tourists can venture to the tomb of Saryhan Bey Turbesi, or check out the Muradiye Camii temple, which is decorated with more than 20 pounds of gold.
