Maidens Tower

The Maiden's Tower, also known as Leander's Tower since the medieval Byzantine 
period, is a tower lying on a small islet located at the southern entrance of the 
Bosphorus strait 220 yards from the coast of Üsküdar in Istanbul, Turkey.
There are many legends about the construction of the tower and its location. 
According to the most popular Turkish legend, an emperor had a much beloved 
daughter and one day, an oracle prophesied that she would be killed by a venomous 
snake on her 18th birthday. The emperor, in an effort to thwart his daughter's 
early demise by placing her away from land so as to keep her away from any snakes, 
had the tower built in the middle of the Bosphorus to protect his daughter until 
her 18th birthday. The princess was placed in the tower, where she was frequently 
visited only by her father.
On the 18th birthday of the princess, the emperor brought her a basket of exotic 
sumptuous fruits as a birthday gift, delighted that he was able to prevent the 
prophecy. Upon reaching into the basket, however, an asp that had been hiding 
among the fruit bit the young princess and she died in her father's arms, just as 
the oracle had predicted. Hence the name Maiden's Tower.
The older name Leander's Tower comes from another story about a maiden: the
ancient Greek myth of Hero and Leander. Hero was a priestess of Aphrodite who 
lived in a tower at Sestos, at the edge of the Hellespont. Leander, a young man 
from Abydos on the other side of the strait, fell in love with her and would swim 
every night across the Hellespont to be with her. Hero would light a lamp every 
night at the top of her tower to guide his way.
Succumbing to Leander's soft words, and to his argument that Aphrodite, as goddess 
of love, would scorn the worship of a virgin, Hero allowed him to make love to 
her. This routine lasted through the warm summer. But one stormy winter night, the 
waves tossed Leander in the sea and the breezes blew out Hero's light, and Leander 
lost his way, and was drowned. Hero threw herself from the tower in grief and died 
as well. The name Maiden's Tower might also have its origins in this ancient 
Due to the vicinity and similarity between the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus, 
Leander's story was mistakenly attributed to the tower.
