Sankey Yadum

3rd February 2011
This is the name of a Mosque with the most strangest name in the world.

It is located in Turkey in " FATEH " District in Istanbul Turkey. It has a beautiful story behind it.

The story goes:

[img:align=left:style='border:solid 3px #green'][/img] There was a pious man living in this part of Turkey called Khirul Dean Efindy.

He would go to the market desiring to buy fruits or meat or sweets.

He would just look and tell himself the famous words "consider as if I have eaten"

He would then save the money that he would have spent in a box at home.

People who know this pious man know the story,

Eventually the man managed over the years to save considerable amount to build a Mosque, the people named the Mosque "SANKEY YADEM "As if I have eaten"

This is the Mosque he has built it is still in existence and cannot cope with the amount of worshippers.
