Wall of wishes


Meryemana also has significance for Muslims, for whom Mary was the mother of one of the great prophets of Islam, called Isa Peygamber. Hence, many Muslims come on pilgrimage to Meryem Ana Evi to leave their prayer intentions. They are often written on slips of material – either paper or plastic  - and left on the wall that is located below the chapel. This wall is known as the "Wall of Wishes".
