The Story of Turkish Ceramic Tiles and how they arrived in the Canadian Sufi Cultural Centre via New York City and 15 years. As told by Tevfik Baba. 15 years ago, 126 boxes of Turkish Ceramic Tiles were brought one by one via American Sufi Travellers visiting Istanbul from New York City and beyond. The 126 boxes intended home was to be Sufi Centre in Toronto. At the time, no one knew which building would be purchased and if the number of tiles would be enough. Miraculously, they had exactly the number of Turkish Tiles needed to adorn the Canadian Sufi Cultural Centre which you see in these photographs. The Sufi Centre is located at 274 Birmingham Street at Kipling Avenue in Etobicoke-Lakeshore. (15 photos total) — HiMY SYeD
