Göksu’s Corn

The rich boiled six caultrons of corn on the Göksu Prairie. Two cauldrons -called the main caultrons- were placed on the fire around five o’ clock in the morning. Traveling corn salesmen on their rowboats were another part of the ritual. A rowboat could go inside Göksu for one kilometer from its mouth. In crowded days, this distance was traveled in 3-4 hours in a rowboat. The merchants selling corn on their rowboats were essential for the river. In Göksu, although in very small numbers, corn is boiled around the river and in front of the pavilion.
