Harran... One of the oldest cities in the world, although the word city is very optimistic nowadays...the only reminders of Harran's past are a few remains of a mosque and a couple of ruined piles which could have been part of the world class university famous for medical advances in the 7th century, or could just as equally have been a world class cowshed. The 'new' village is odd because of its 'beehive' houses...a good day trip from nearby Urfa.
