  •   klapaucius142 INTERNATIONAL MANİSA MESIR FESTIVAL
    Sultan Mosque, which was built upon the request of Hafsa Sultan, wife of Yavuz Sultan Selim and mother of Süleyman the Magnificent, is situated in the Sultan Complex. In the past, Turkish bath in the complex was free of charge; and food was available for homeless people at the public kitchen. Many diseases were cured at the hospital of the complex.
    Mesir paste was first prepared by Merkez Efendi, the director of the hospital then, using 41 different spices. This paste became very popular as Hafsa Sultan, who had an incurable disease, got cured after eating this paste. Becoming popular among the local people as a cure for health problems, mesir paste began to be distributed among the people.
    Due to large demand, it was casted from the domes and minarets of the Sultan Mosque. According the belief of the local people, one who eats mesir paste on the day of newruz has no pain throughout the year and is protected against snakebites.
    Today, local and foreign tourists are attracted by the Mesir Paste Distribution Ceremony held during the Mesir festival celebrated at the end of March each year @nexus7.5 9h
