An event typically organized in Şanlıurfa that features a gathering of people eating and singing songs with traditional musical instruments. The guests sitting cross legged at a low sofra table and tucking into a banquet of speciality local dishes while being serenaded by a traditional band. The nights also helped people who lived in the same area to get to know each other. This is a significant characteristic of the diverse culture of Şanlıurfa, reflecting peace and tolerance.

About Şanlıurfa

The city of prophet Abraham. Shortened name Urfa, after Turkish War Independence awarded the title “Şanlı” (glorious).

Ancient city of Ur proudly exhibits the legacy of all the civilisations that have prospered in the region. Important attraction within the town is the carp filled fish pool (Balıklıgöl-Ainzelha) also believed to be the place where Nemrud threw Abraham into the fire.  God changed the flames into water and the wood into fish to protect Abraham.

About Mardin

Mardin lies at the heart of homeland of Syriacs an ancient people established in Mesopotamia around 2200 BC.

Syriac is a Semitic language directly related to the native tongue of Jesus Christ, Aramaic.

While the Syriac population in Mardin dwindled due to emigration they are still very much present in the city, along with more or less all other regional cultures, including Turks, Kurds, and Arabs.

 

Mardin served as the capital of Turkic Artuqid dynasty between 12th and 15th centuries, which resulted in much of the Islamic heritage visible in the city today.

 

Mardin is a highly addictive and unmissable spot. Minarets emerge from a baked brown labyrinth of meandering lanes, a castle dominates the old city, and stone houses cascade down the hillside above the Mesopotamian plains.
