Sohbet – What is Sohbet?

“Sohbet” – the most common and long-established social practice of “sohbet” is that men who are considered adults from local communities gather and exchange ideas, regardless of ethnicity, religion, or social status. Sohbet members were required to be sincere, have an honest family, be trustworthy, respect the elders, not gamble, not get drunk in public, etc.

Sohbet comes in various formats and ways of participation, sometimes accompanied by light meals, reading circles, recitations, and plays. These traditional Sohbets play an essential role in conveying ethical values ​​such as fairness, tolerance, kindness, and respect for each other in the community and are now designated as UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
