Photographer's Note

There is also another name for this tower which is the Leander's Tower. In this legend Leander tries to see his lover and attempts to cross the straight but unfortunately drowns to death. Therefore this is named as the Leander's Tower. However, this legend takes place in Abydos in Dardanelles, not his straight. So this name is somewhat mistaken.
