120 O Spot That Art Situate On The Shores Of The Two Seas! #89






This is a reference to Constantinople, now called Istanbul. Located on the
Bosphorus, a strait about 31 kilometres long which links the Black Sea and
the Sea of Marmara, it is the largest city and seaport of Turkey.

Constantinople was the capital of the Ottoman Empire from 1453 until 1922.
During Baha'u'llah's sojourn in this city, the tyrannical Sultan
'Abdu'l-'Aziz occupied the throne. The Ottoman Sultans were also the
Caliphs, the leaders of Sunni Islam. Baha'u'llah anticipated the fall of
the Caliphate, which was abolished in 1924.
