Ahi Evran, regarded as the sage of tanners and leader of 32 craft and trade types, is a Turkish philosopher who founded “Ahi-order”. He was born in the district of Hoy in Azerbaijan, which is left within the boundaries of Iran today. Exact date of his birth is not known, but it can be deduced from the fact that he lived for 93 years and died in 1261 that he was born in 1171. After he was educated in Azerbaijan, Khorasan and Bagdat, he moved to Kayseri in Anatolia in 1205 and established Ahi-order there and provided its organization through many cities in Anatolia. He lived in Konya and Denizli for a while and settled in Kırşehir until his death in 1261.

Justification of Outstanding Universal Value

Ahi Evran was one of the society leaders in the 13th century and also for centuries following his death and is remembered with legendary deeds even today. He had contributed to Anatolian Turkish craftsmen and merchants with his literary works and actions. By the order he founded, an “excellent man” and “excellent society” was aimed and not only the vocational education but also religious, moral and social knowledge has been provided to followers for this reason.
