MOVABLE CULTURAL PROPERTIES

Our ancestors establishing foundation have constructed public buildings such as Han, Turkish baths, imarets, hospitals, schools and mosques with no thought of personal gain and revealed our works in the nature of title deeds of our country and kept them alive. 

Today the duty of protecting our foundation cultural properties for the next generations belongs to Directorate General of Foundations. However, protection of these works requires a common responsibility which cannot be entrusted to a single institution or organization. Protection must also be implemented by civilian authorities, safety units, municipalities and by all our citizens. If we share this responsibility, our historical properties will live forever. 

Archival Works
Documents containing all and any information about foundations established from the Ottoman period to today otherwise known as ordinances and deeds of trust. Classification and transfer to micro film of these works has been completed and transfer to computer files still continues as part of the VAYS project. Their safety and physical protection has been ensured. They are open for examination by domestic and foreign researchers.

LOADING

"As for the issues related to the foundations, it is known that foundations constitute an important asset of our country. I hope that all members of Council of Ministers together with the Ministry Of Religious Affairs and even the Supreme Assembly examine this issue with great care and that this great institution is protected from devastation and made useful for our country in order to ensure that our country can benefit from this asset as necessary."
