Rhodes and the Dodecanese Sights



Turkish Library

Turkish Library Review

The Turkish Library dates to the late 18th century and houses a rare collection of Turkish, Persian, and Arab manuscripts, including many rare Korans. Striking reminders of the Ottoman presence, the library and the Mosque of Suleyman are still used by those members of Rhodes's Turkish community who stayed in Rhodes after the 1923 population exchange, a mass repatriation of Greek and Turkish migrants.
