KOUKLIA history

History

The very good geographic position of the village as well as the profitable agricultural and farming operations are factors that have aided the remarkable population growth. The inhabitants of Kouklia numbered 404 in 1881, increasing to 520 in 1921. In 1946 the inhabitants run into 791 (437 Greek-Cypriots and 354 Turkish-Cypriots) and in 1973 to 1110 (613 Greek-Cypriots, 494 Turkish-Cypriots, and 3 of other nationalities). After the Turkish invasion of 1974, the Turkish-Cypriot inhabitants of the village were coerced by their leadership to abandon the village and transfer to the occupied regions, along with all the other Turkish-Cypriots from the non-occupied areas. In 1976 the inhabitants of Kouklia were 732, which decreased to 681 in 1982. In the census of 2001 the inhabitants were 669.

The village is built in the venue were "Palaipafos" (Old Pafos) -the seat of the kingdom of Pafos -stood, which was one of the most important ancient kingdoms of Cyprus.
The entire area of the community, including also the place where -today -the houses of the village are built, is an important archaeological region. Excavations have been conducted at times, bringing to surface the famous temple of "Aphrodite of Pafos" (Pafia Aphrodite), the remains of the fortification of Palaipafos, and various other movable findings that are found in the archaeological Museum situated in the village, housed in the medieval villa south of the village.

The village was in existence during the Byzantine years and must have been a property of the Byzantine officer "Kouvikoularios". The word "kouvouklion" meant sepulchral chamber but also meant the dormitory of the Byzantine emperors. The bodyguards of the Byzantine emperors that guarded the imperial dormitory were named "kouvikoularioi" and often were granted pieces of land as a reward for their services. Such a "kouvikoularios" most probably became the master/owner of the village and so it was named Kou(vou)klia. Therefore, if kouklia was not the property of a "kouvikoularios" then it must have been a place with country houses for Byzantine officials.

The village was still named "Kouvouklia" until the Frank domination era, instead of the abbreviated Kouklia. De Masse Latri reports that during the Frank domination era the village was a large royal estate in which sugarcane was cultivated. The large medieval villa of Kouklia proves that the village was an important feud.

During the era of Turkish domination, Kouklia were confiscated by the new conqueror and became a manor.

Organised Groups

Dancing Group
 
The Dance Club was established in 1990. The Dance Club’s objective is to offer a healthy occupation to the youth of the community, this way helping them, through dancing, to socialise and to contribute in spreading and maintaining the tradition of our country.

Among the future plans of the Dance Club is to create a group which will participate in all events held at the village, as well as in performances overseas, this way contributing to the cultural exchange between our community and other communities, similar to what took place recently in cooperation with the Greek island of Limnos. 

The Dance Club cooperates with the Folk Club ‘Aphrodite Geroskipou’.

What is noteworthy is that the Dancing Club’s classes are held every Sunday afternoon, from 4 pm until 6 pm at the Cultural Centre of Kouklia.

 

Theatre Group
 
The Theatrical Group was established in 1989 having as its primary objective to urge the youth to embrace tradition and become more familiar with the culture of our country, both through traditional theatrical plays and through performances inspired from the Greek history and mythology, which are related to Aphrodite and the site of Palaepafos which surrounds us.

The Theatrical Group presents two performances on an annual basis. One of the performances is given at the square of the village on the Monday of Easter, while the second one is given at the Museum of Kouklia in August. Additionally, the group has given performances in Schools, Youth Centre Festivals and overseas.

 

Other Activities
 
The rest of the Youth Centre’s activities are the following:

  •     Organising a March against Drugs which begins at Kouklia and ends at the Port of Kato Pafos. The arrival of the marchers at Kouklia signifies the beginning of a series of events against Drugs held by the Youth Organisation.
  •     Organising field trips for the Youth of our Community throughout the year and to various destinations all over Cyprus.
