EFSANELER

 

Asya ile Avrupa'nın kesiştiği noktada Boğaz'ın ve İstanbul'un 2500 yıllık tarihine tanıklık eden Kızkulesi, asırlar boyunca pek çok efsaneye de konu olmuştur

 

Yüzerek geleceğim sana.

Güzel kız, senin sevgin uğruna,

Sana geleceğim.

Sen beklerken beni ürkek bakışlarla,

Yüzerek geleceğim sana.

Dalgalar gemilere bile geçit vermese,

Yüzerek geleceğim sana.

Azgın dalgalar arasından...

 

Hero ve Leandros’un ölümsüz aşk hikayesi...

 

Kızkulesi ile ilgili anlatılan ilk hikâye; Ovidius'un kaydettiği bir aşk hikâyesidir. Hero ile Leandros adlı iki gencin hüzünlü aşkını anlatan bu hikâye, Hero'nun kuleden ayrılmasıyla başlar. Hero, Afrodit'in rahibelerindendir ve aşka yasaklıdır. Yıllar sonra Afrodit'in tapınağında yapılan bir törene katılmak için kuleden ayrılır ve orada Leandros ile karşılaşır. Delikanlının ateşli ve hüzünlü bakışı Hero'yu etkiler. İki aşık, yıllardır birbirlerini tanıyorlarmış gibi, bu kısacık zaman diliminde, kalplerinin artık başka bir insan için çarpmayacağını anlarlar. Birbirine aşık olan iki genç, Leandros'un gece kuleye gelmesi ile aşklarını kutsarlar.

 

Kızkulesi her gece iki gencin gizli aşkına ve yasak sevişmelerine tanıklık eder. Leandros'un yüzerek kuleye geldiği fırtınalı bir günde Hero'nun yaktığı sevda ateşinin feneri söner. Karanlıkta yolunu kaybeden Leandros, Boğaz'ın sularına gömülür. Sevgilisinin öldüğünü gören Hero da kendini Kızkulesi'nden Boğaz'ın sularına bırakır.

 

 

LEGENDS

 

Maiden's Tower, located at the intersection point of the two continents Europe and Asia, witnessed what the city encountered for 2500 years and has led to many legendary stories through out the history.

 

The eternal love of Hero and Leandros…

 

“I will swim to you.

Pretty Girl, for the faith of your love,

I will come to you.

While you are waiting for me with nervous look in your eyes,

I will swim to you.

Although, waves do not let even ships to pass,

I will swim to you.

Among the wild waves….”

 

The first story about Maiden's Tower is based on the love of Hero and Leandros which was recorded by Ovidius. Hero was a nun from the temple of Aphrodite and prohibited to love, therefore, she was placed to a tower to be protected from men. However, one day she left the tower for a ritual at the temple and on her way back she came across with Leandros. The passionate and melancholic glance of Leandros affected Hero from deep inside. Hero and Leandros fell in love with each other and had the feeling that their heart will not beat for someone else again.

 

They blessed their love after Leandros' visit to the tower at night. The Tower was the witness of these young lovers and its lighthouse was guiding only the heart of Leandros. The only fear of Hero was the anger of goddess. On a stormy night, when Leandros was swimming to reach the tower, ever-winking light of the lighthouse got faded and he drowned at Bosphorus. In the morning, Hero saw the dead body of Leandros at the shore and she left herself down from the tower.
