Eid in Goreme - need advice

Postby thanvi_b » Thu Nov 19, 2009 12:17 pm

As per our tour itinerary, we are reaching in Gereme in early morning (say 7- 8 am) of 27th Nov. (Eid day) from Pamukkale....I have already booked a Hotel for the day in Gereme (i am an Indian coming from Dubai)..

Can somebody (muslim guys can help) inform me about the Eid prayer timing in Goreme....

Can i find a Mosque for Eid prayer near the Goreme bus station...

Will the day effect my travel from Goreme bus station to my Hotel..it is in Gafeli mah no. 6...

Thanks in advance....

There's a mosque about 100 metres south of the bus station.
Göreme is a village, so you'll have no problem getting to your hotel. There's a tourist information office at the bus station, you could probably have your hotel collect you from there.

P.S. "When you get to Goreme town we have the shuttle waiting you at the bus terminal. This is a free service offered from our hotel." from the Dervish Cave House website.

Here are prayer times for 27 November in Nevsehir, Turkey (close to Göreme). The first time is for the Imsak, or wake-up call:

27.11.2009 (5:00) 6:29 11:36 14:07 16:30 17:52

For more times, go to the Turkish Department of Religious Affairs website:

http://www.diyanet.gov.tr/turkish/namaz ... zvakti.asp

—Under "Sehirler" choose "Nevsehir"
—Click the button for "Aylik"
—Click "Hesapla," and prayer times will be listed for the coming 30 days

Goreme's largest mosque is less than a five-minute walk from Goreme bus station. Ask anyone for the "cami" (JAH-mee).

Best wishes for your celebration of the Eid! :)

Hii Tom..

Eid prayer might be at a different time...normally after sunrise...here in Dubai.. it s at 6:30 am...

Usually the govt. body or the masjid inform people about the time some days before the Eid..

From where i can get this info??..

According to the same source (Turkish Department of Religious Affairs), the Kurban Bayrami Namaz Vakti (Eid prayer time) for Nevsehir (and Göreme) on November 27, 2009, is 07:19.
