don't imagine you are the first to visit the town!

one of the oldest cities over world and history!
abraham,job,st george stayed here.

later "edesse" was occupied by seleucides,byzantines,persians,turks,arabs,crusaders

moreover, a holy city,where turks come in pilgrimage.

urfa,became sanliurfa,(sanli means "brave") for resisting to french army after 1st world war.

nowadays,huge ataturk dam ,irrigating mesopotamia,is changing and improving its economic life!
