Yozgat located in middle part of Turkey and between Cappadocia to Yozgat is 190 km. It was an important residential area in those times, and Alisar, one of the main Hittite cities, lies inside the borders of this province. 217 kms from Ankara is Yozgat, whose history extends as far back as the Hittite period Bogazkoy and Alacahoyuk, though not being part of Yozgat, are near enough to reflect the central position of the site with the notable ruins found in the district.
Today’s city of Yozgat, on the other hand, is rather new, founded in the 18th century by the Ottomans. Capanoglu Ahmet Pasa, who was the “Bey” of the Turkmens at that time was the founder; and the Capanoglu Mosque which carries his name, stands as a remnant of this period along with the Suleyman Bey Mosque
