You will find yourself here at the end of a winding souk ,,, worth a climb up onto the roof area for the view over the Mesopotamian plain ,,, not the most stunning mosque ,, but as it was an Armenian church captured and converted ,, what do you expect .

The mosque itseld is lovely from the outside. Not the most beautiful inside, but still worth a visit. Contains a relic of Abraham's beard.

Ulu Camii, located in the heart of Mardin Old City is believed to be built on an old church, though an arguement that could not be proven scientifically . Although the exact date it has founded is not known the numerous inscriptive plaques from Seljuk, Artuqid, Aq Qoyunlu and Ottoman periods, shows that it was probably founded in the eleventh... More
