Overview

Discover the Mesopotamia region in southwestern Asia where the world’s earliest civilization developed.

Start at the Sanlıurfa Archaeological Museum, which presents the history of the region from the beginning.

Dive into the history of Gobekli Tepe (Potbelly Hill) - the oldest temple of the world.

See the Balikligol (The Fish Lake), the lake full with carp fish. According to the legend, Nimrod had immolated Abraham on a funeral pyre, but God turned the fire into water and the burning coals into fish.

Visit the Kizilkoyun Necropolis, 133 stone tombs, dating back to Edessa Kingdom.

Rumour has it that Moses, a sacred figure in Abrahamic religions, escaped from the pharaoh and lived in Sogmatar Ancient City, which is located some 80 kilometers (50 miles) away from Şanlıurfa’s center.

Han El Barur was built in 1228 to service the local trade caravans on the way of the Silk Road.
