Beiram (2)


Haji, a saint highly revered among the Turks, whose name was perhaps derived by corruption from the Persian word baharam. He was sheik, and founder of an order of dervishes which he called Beirami. He was born at Sal, a village near Angora, not far from the river Chouboukfchou, and died in 876. His tomb is a spot to which frequent pilgrimages are made. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
