STORY OF THE GOLDEN DOLPHIN
In the very old times, there was a fishing village in the place where Altın Yunus is located now. A child called Hermais used to live here with his family. One day, Hermais and his friends went swimming to play and swim. A fierce storm broke out after a while and waves rose more and more and children ran away and went back to the village. However, Hermais did not come back. His mother waited for Hermias on the shore for days but to no end…
Years passed and one day a fisherman saw blonde Hermias on a dolphin swimming in windy waves but he could not catch him.
He told what he had seen when he went back to the village to everyone. Hermias’ mother was hopeful again and ran to the shore but she could not see her son.
The dolphin took care of Hermais and grew him for years. It became his best friend. Of course, Hermias grew up and got older. He died naturally. The dolphin brought Hermais to the shore and left him there. The magic dolphin not being able to go back into the sea died next to Hermais. All people spoke about the friendship of the dolphin and Hermais for years and this event became a myth. The mytological place of this myth is Cesme Altın Yunus. People turned the friendship of Hermias and the dolphin into a golden statue and this statue is in the form as the village man saw Hermias and maintains its mythological character. If you come to Cesme one day, do not forget to see Altın Yunus! Experience the mythology and holiday together in Cesme. Let the magic embrace you in this corner that Hermais used to swim on the dolphin so you will notice the love and loyalty of the mythology at the first moment and in your first breath. No matter where you go, always remember us.
