Kilitbahir Castle; Other guard of Dardanelles

My previous article is about the castle of Sultan Mehmed II (the conquerer). That castle has a brother on the other shore of the Dardanelles Strait. Its name is Kilitbahir Castle.

It has the same mission with his brother; to protect and to watch the strait. As I mentioned that defence of the capital became the most important task for Sultan Mehmed II so he had two castles built to watch the Dardanelles. Also it had an important mission during the Gallipoli war in 20th century as a frontier.
