Asmazlar Bağevi has been formed from two parts “Harem and Selamlık”. After entering to the, in order to pass to Harem, a separate door and upstairs is used which is in the part named as “life”. The reason of this is, the religion and traditions did not allow the women of the house seen by strange men from out of house.
Ferris Wheel (Dönme Dolap) is on the first floor and between harem and selamlık. At the old times, the ferris Wheel were used to provide the service of treats to the men guests out of family by the women of the house. They were putting the treats on the shelves of the ferris Wheel and turning towards men’s side selamlık and the men were taking the treats without seeing the women. The ferris Wheel is worth seeing because of it reflects the family life of Safranbolu people in old times.
