History

Denizli city was established for the first time around Eskihisar Village, 6 km north of today's city. This city is BC. (261-245), the King of Syria II. It was founded by Antiochustheos and it is called LAODICIA on behalf of his wife. After the Turks captured the Denizli weather, they transported the city to the present Kaleiçi site where the water is abundant. In the name of Denizli, we find other names in historical sources. The records of Seljuk and the court of Denizli (Ladik) (laodikeia) give the name. Ibni Batuta's travelname (Tunguzluğ) is called. It was also recorded in Mesalikullebsar (Tunguzlu). He speaks of two names, such as Şerafettin Zemdi (Tenguzlug) and (Tonguzlug), who wrote the names of the victories of Timurlenk. Uncensored word refers to Sea in old Turkic language. Tunguzlu means Denizli with its present symbol. As a result, the names of Denizli, Tunguzlu and Tunguzlu have taken their present shape with the passage of time from their mouths, becoming Denizli words. Denizli in the 18th and 19th centuries In the 16th and 17th centuries, the Denizli Accident, which is connected to the center of Anatolian State in Kütahya Sanjak in 1451, is divided into four sections, namely Nahiye-i Lazikiyye (Center), Nahiye-i Ibsi, Nahiye-i Kaş-Yenice and Nahiye-i Aydos It consisted of the divine. In the region of the central district of the city of Nevşehir, the district of Ibişili, Buldan and Güney, Aydos is an area extending to Ulubey, Eşme and Alasehir in the north of Uşak, to the vicinity of Kiraz in the west of Aydin. . These Nephews became an accident in the 17th century and took the name of Ibsili Nahiyesi: Ezine, Kaş-Yenice Nahiyesi: Çarşamba (Cıharmakba). In the 16th century, Aydos began to be known as the Gök-Öyük Accident. Participated in the accident named Honaz'a, the number rose to five. At the end of the 18th century it is seen that the name of Buldan is sometimes passed on documents related to Avarız and Bedel-i Nüzul, Imdâd-ı Seferiye and Hazariye taxes. In 1213 (1798), a sailor's book is listed as follows: Kazay-ı Denizli, Kazay-ı Ezine, Kazay-ı Buldan, Kazay-ı Honaz, Kazay-ı Gök-Öyük. It is noteworthy that Buldan was written instead of the accident in the book. In the distribution books in Denizli Şer'iye Siciller, 26 villages contributing to the city's annual costs and taxes were recorded. Bekirli is the village with the least tax deducted from this tabloda feeling that Karcı village is in the first place. The Karcı has taken the name of Başkarcı today. Among the sources of income are woven looms made of walnut wood that Denizli hand weaving has become famous for centuries of fabrics produced on these looms. In addition to the above-mentioned villagers, some evidence from the records of the sherries from 1781 shows the names of the villagers named Eldeniz, Şamlı Kebir. Eldenizli from these villages, who seemed to pay an average of 50 pennies a year, took the names of Şamlı Kebir and Şamlı Sagir, Lower and Upper Sami while continuing their existence with the same name. Continuing to be an accident connected to the Kütahya Sanjak during the 18th century, Denizli became a banner on the division of the Anatolian Beylerbeyi in the 19th century and was connected to the newly established Aydın Sancağı. Denizli, which was joined with Menteşe after the arrangement of 1867, joined Aydin Sanjak as an accident but in 1883 Denizli sanjak was re-established as a mutasarrifership and reached to the widest borders of Ottoman period with the participation of Tavas in 1884 and Garbi Karaağaç (Acıpayam) in 1888 . In this period, the number of villages of Denizli, which consists of 6 accidents and 1 nativity, reached 385.
