The ancient city of Mardin, Western Armenia is one of the most important places to visit. Many buildings built in this city, attracting attention with their architectural details and beauty, differ from other structures, typical only of Mardin.
If you want to see the architectural and cultural heritage of our ancestors from ancient times, then it is time to visit Mardin.
The halls called abbara, built on the historic streets with an arched alley, attract the attention of local and foreign tourists. The number of arched alleys was 106, but has reached 57.
There is another alley 3-5 meters below each. These serve as a transition from a district to another. The length of the alleys is 5-25 meters. Their height is mainly from 1.5 to 5 meters. In the past, these alleys facilitated the movement of ancestors. We must protect these unique structures, as they present a culture that cannot be lost.
