I advice everybody to visit Melih's Gourdlamps Workshop in Göreme. There are two reasons for that, First, his extraordinary lamps, second is his wonderful personality. Thanks to Mr.Melih Eroglu

One of the sweetest places to visit in Goreme! I walked in just to check the artwork and ended up making my own lamp. Melih treats the gourds with love creating stunning lamps that look and smell like heaven! Definitely recommended!
