Exploring Mardin & Midyat in Southeast Turkey
MARDİN Culture Tour / 3 nights - 4 days
Top-Rated Tourist Attractions in Mardin
This old medrese (theological college) was founded in 1385 by İsa Bey. As one of the best preserved buildings in Mardin, it should be top of your things to do tick list. The complex is comprised of a domed mosque, a mausoleum, and two tranquil inner-courtyards. The architectural highlight of the building is the intricately decorated and imposing doorway, which is a beautiful example of Islamic artistry. For those not so interested in stonework, don't miss climbing the stairs to the rooftop, where you'll be rewarded with panoramic views over the town..
Forty Martyrs Church
This 4th-century church still holds services every Sunday, which tourists are welcome to attend. If you're not here for the weekend, the church interior can still be visited throughout the rest of the week if you speak to the caretaker (who is usually easily found nearby and has the key). The interior, with its beautiful decoration, is definitely worth seeing. Above the entrance are some intricate carvings commemorating the Christian martyrs of Cappadocia, which the church was renamed in honor of in the 15th century.
The collection here is small but contains some interesting artifacts from the archaeological sites scattered amid the countryside around Mardın. Even if you're not a museum fan, the building the museum is housed in, with its regal colonnades and grand courtyards, is worth the entry price alone. This 19th-century traditional stone villa has been restored to an impressive standard, and walking through the rooms gives you a good idea of the fine style in which local merchants.
Mardin Castle towers above town on a rocky crag. To get there, take the steep path that leads up to the fortress starting from the Zinciriye Medresesi. If possible, time your visit after the worst of the day's heat has dissipated as walking up under the midday blazing sun is quite exhausting. Dating from the Roman era, the castle was extended in the 15th century, so that all the inhabitants of Mardın would be able to seek refuge inside in the event of an impending attack. A relief carving of two magnificent lions can still be seen on the gateway.
The charming village of Hasankeyf is cut in two by the Tigris River. The town was established by the Romans as a border post with the Persians and named Cephe. Under Byzantine rule the town prospered, but its heyday came to an end with the invasions of the Artuqids, Ayyubids, and later, the Mongols. Four arches sticking picturesquely out of the river are all that remain of the original grand bridge across the Tigris. Up on the cliff ridge above (where you can get great photos of the river) is the castle surrounded by cave dwellings.
Midyat has an atmospheric Old Town district that is ripe for exploring. The maze of alleyways is packed to the brim with lovely old stone houses, many with elaborately carved facade details. There are nine Syrian Orthodox churches in town, including Mar Aznoyo and Mar Barsaume, although the majority of the Christian population who once lived here has now left. Midyat is also a silversmith center, and small family-run jewelry workshops can be found throughout the town. Just outside town (16 kilometers to the south) is Mor Gabriel Monastery.
