The Artuqid dynasty was an extraordinary state established during maybe one of the most chaotic periods of Anatolia’s tens of thousands of years of history. During a time when the Seljuks, the Eyyubis, the Crusaders, the Byzantines and other Anatolian Turkish Principalities entered into a relentless struggle for domination, this extraordinary state never ceased to let go of technology, art or urbanization, and the spectacular machines and inventions of their genius engineer, Jazari, continue even today to be an inspiration for humanity.

The exhibition, prepared based on the expression “Look upon your history, write the future!” reflects the cultural atmosphere of the era and conveys the magnificent technical and scientific legacy which Jazari inherited from those before him and left to those after him along with unique contributions. Developments that can be considered as both the major machines of the great Jazari and the milestones of the history of science and technology await visitors at the Uniq Expo with the initiative of the Istanbul Jazari Museum.
