Introduction / History

In the times of the Turkish or Ottoman Empire in the 1500s, Turks began coming to Algeria. The people of the city of Algiers invited the two Barbarossa brothers, who were Ottomans, to drive away the Spanish who were already in the region. This they did with success. The Ottomans began to rule in one place after another.

The Turks in Algeria have mixed well in Algerian life but are fond of their Ottoman- Turkish links. They identify themselves with both Algeria and Turkey. There is a notable Turkish culture in Algeria. Turkish coffees, pastries and desserts are enjoyed here. The Turkish language has influenced words and also titles and surnames. Turkish music and architecture is also an influence.

The Turks live in big cities like the capital Algiers as well as Constantine and Tiemcen. There are yet remains of old Turkish cities in Algeria. They have an Association called the Association of Algerian Turks. There are many well-known Algerian Turks.

The Turks in Algeria speak Turkish, Arabic and French. They are Muslims and follow Sunni Islam.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God gives the Turks in Algeria and in other countries including Turkey,
dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
