"The Pool itself with its mosque and cypress trees is one of the loveliest places I have seen in Turkey. I spent a long time there under the pretence of feeding the fish but really because after weary days of desert it was impossible to drag oneself away from the beauty of the clear water and trees and graceful towers."]
