THE LEGEND OF ŞAHMERAN
The upper part of her body is a beautiful woman, and the lower part of her body is a mythological creature found in fairy tales of eastern culture. This legend is located in the Tarsus province of the Mediterranean Region. This was called Meran. These serpents, who lived in peace, were intelligent, compassionate, and their queen was called Şahmeran. The wood devil was Jamshab, son of a poor family. Cemşab wants to extract honey from a cave with his friends, but they keep Cemşab in the cave because you can buy more honey. When Cemşab sees a hole leaking in the cave, he expands this hole with his knife and sees a beautiful garden. This garden has unique flowers, a pool and unique snakes. Cemşab, who has lived here for years, earns the trust of Şahmeran, but misses his family and tells him to let him go.
