Historical Places to Visit in Turkey’s Southeastern Anatolia Region

 

Turkey, which makes all four seasons live to its fullest with its unique beauties, continues to offer views from heaven in every region and to make you feel the smell of history in every period. In this article, I will give you information about the places to visit in Turkey’s Southeastern Anatolia Region.

  1. Balıklıgöl: 150 m. in front of the Urfa Castle in Eyyübiye, Şanlıurfa. It is a natural wonder lake with a length of 30 meters and a width of 30 meters. According to the legend, Hz. The fact that it is the lake where Abraham fell after being thrown into the fire and that the carp in the lake is also the name of Hz. In the belief that it is the wood of the fire in which Abraham was burned, honey is considered sacred and not kept and eaten.
  2. Halfeti: It is a town called the Sunken City, where many people’s homes and historical monuments were flooded as a result of the construction of the dam in Şanlıurfa. You can also take a boat tour in Halfeti and see the structures that are still under the water, such as the Great Mosque and the Greek Castle.
  3. Göbeklitepe: Göbeklitepe, which is believed to be the world’s first temple and the first settlement of people in the Haliliye district of Şanlıurfa, is said to have been built 7500 years before the Egyptian Pyramids. I can say that it is a historical beauty that must be seen.
  4. Mount Nemrut: Located in the Kahta district of Adıyaman, at an altitude of 2150 meters, the monuments on this mountain were built by the Commagene King Antiochos. From Mount Nemrut, you can watch the uniquely beautiful sunrise and sunset views.
  5. Zeugma Ancient City and Museum: The mosaics in the museum, where the famous Gypsy Girl mosaic is located in Gaziantep’s Nizip district, are the works found during the excavations in the Zeugma Ancient City. I would definitely recommend you to come and see the Gypsy Girl mosaic, which is likened to the Mona Lisa with her gaze.
  6. Mor Gabriel Monastery: The oldest Syriac Orthodox monastery in Mardin’s Midyat district, which is still standing, the Mor Gabriel Monastery is also called Deyrulumur Monastery. It would be beneficial to see this monument, which has unique beauties with its terraces, domes, bell towers, gates and mosaics.
  7. Harran Ruins: Located in the Harran district of Şanlıurfa, this ancient city has hosted many civilizations such as the Sumerians, Assyrians, Romans and Byzantines. I recommend you to see their house as well Harran Castle, Harran Mound, Harran Great Mosque, Han El-Bağrur Caravanserai and the vault houses with conical domes that are unique to the region.
  8. Deyrulzafaran Monastery: The first printing house of the region, which is located in the Artuklu district of Mardin and has a sacred value for the Assyrians, was established here. Hundreds of books in Syriac, Ottoman, Arabic and Turkish were printed in this printing house and parts of the printing house are still in this monastery. Watching the sunset in the Mor Hananyo Church, which consists of 4 separate parts, the Church of the Virgin Mary, the House of Saints and the Sun Temple will make you experience wonderful feelings.
  9. Malabadi Bridge: It is one of the most important works of the 12th century architecture of the Seljuk Empire, built during the Artukoğulları Period in the Silvan district of Diyarbakır. The Malabadi Bridge, with its arch spanning 40.86 meters, is the largest stone bridge that has survived to the present day in the world, and since it is located on the road where commercial caravans are widely used, there are rooms for passengers on both sides of the arch. It is a must see work.
