Discovering TURKEY: Ancient city of Magnesia.
The Greek ancient city of Magnesia may be one which is off the tourist trail, but we made it a point to stop here, as my husband’s family own a summer home in the city of Volos in Greece, which is the capital of the region of Magnesia, situated about 200km away from Thessaloniki.
The early settlers of this region were originally from this part of Turkey, and had named their new settlement after this ancient city. This image shows the propylaea (monumental gateway) to the city. I was amazed by their relatively good conditions.

Panch Mahal, a five-floored pillared pavilion, contains richly carved 176 columns. It’s also called Badgir or the wind tower that served as an antidote to the north India’s scorching heat. The building was most likely a pleasure palace for the royal harem. The top storey provides a good view of the huge courtyard and pool in front. It is from here that Akbar liked to watch games of Pachisi, an ancient Indian form of chess, being played in the courtyard below. Court historian, Abul Fazl, author of Akabarnama, says that Akbar was fond of challenging his courtiers to a game of Pachisi. Sixteen young slaves from the harem, wearing the players' colours, represented the pieces, and moved to the squares according to the throw of the dice.
