Epitaph in Istanbul University Archive
The epitaph situated on the doors of the historic Samsun Castle is registered in the Istanbul University Head of University Library archives. Samsun has a long-established cultural richness and the habitats want to keep their heritages alive and guard them for next generations. Today, the only thing left from the castle is a 13 meter fortification wall that was brought out by Municipality of Samsun during Big Mosque’s renovation in 2008. Samsun Cultural and Natural Heritage Preservation Board then officially registered the wall and took it under protection.
