Nasreddin Hoca

This statue is in honour of the legendary satirist, punster and joker Nasreddin Hodja His stories are legendary. Here's one about this statue:

One day Nasreddin Hodja got on his donkey the wrong way, facing towards the back.
- "Hodja," the people said, "You are sitting on your donkey backwards!"
- "No," he replied. "It's not that I am sitting on the donkey backwards, the donkey is facing the wrong way."
