Kasimiye Medresesi

The almost 1000 years old university. One of the 5 in Mardin. Has a pool in the courtyard to cool down the hot climate.

Dar-ul zefaran

The old Christian monastery is built on the 4000 years old temple of the sun. It is said that the stones of the building are mixed up with saffron to have a special colour.


The city is built on hills. Conquered by Roman, Artuks, Seljuks, Ottoman, Roman and other empires. The old houses and schools are built from a yellow like coloured stone unique in Mardin.
