Excerpt from Narrative of Travels in Europe, Asia, and Africa, in the Seventeenth Century

He returned with the same despatch to Damascus, whence he set out on his pilgrimage to Mecca, through Egypt. Of this pilgrimage no account is given in our manuscript copy, as it seems he died before he had completed the work. There is no question, however, as to the time at which it was undertaken, since in his account of the reign of Sultan Murad IV. He states that he was just in time, after his return from Mecca through Egypt, to share in the glory of the victory gained by Murteza Pasha over the Druzes, in the year 1059. Now Evliya's account of this expedition commences in the month Of Mohar rem 1059, from which it may be supposed that he had just returned from Mecca, where the annual ceremonies of the pilgrimage take place in Zilhijeh, the last month of the year.
