It is necessary to regard the location in which the beloved (the sultan, the praised) is present as a growing image or value in Classical Turkish Literature. The location where the beloved is is accepted as the spiritual center of the world and it is privileged. Because of this privilege all spiritual development and transformation of love develop around its location. The location in which the beloved is present (such as a garden, a palace, etc) is the land of peace and happiness and pureland. It is holy and the land of saints. Moreover, it is the actual location and original hometown of the lover and the center of everything. Every place where the beloved is is sanctified with his or her holiness and transforms into a holy place. The location of the beloved in literary texts appear as an extreme location rather than an ordinary place that reminds lovers of “eternity” and gives them the feeling of “freedom”, a spiritua llocation rather than a geographical location. Being close to the beloved, his or her location and the holy one indirectly means developing culturally and economically, gettings piritually refreshed and making use of the light it spreads around. On the other hand, being far away from it means being alone and helpless. Alllocations outside the location of the beloved is unfamiliar to him.
