MARDIN, NORTHERN KURDISTAN

Today’s introduction of one of Kurdistan’s  beautiful cities is the ancient city of Mêrdîn (Mardin). This beautiful city holds one of the oldest architecture in the region and this is seen through the structure of homes, streets, museum, and holly places.The breath taking city lies on the mountain and surrounds the side of the mountain and its located in Northern Kurdistan (known to westerners as Eastern Turkey). It would unfortunate to deny the city as  one of the Kurds and it would indeed take away from its rich history. Today the city’s inhabitants are Kurds, Turks and some Arabs. I do not want to give a history lesson about the city rather I wanted to share a few breath taking photos.
