Nice Tea Restaurant

At the Bridge there are nice Tea Gardens to relax in the shade at the riverbank and watch the bridge and old city walls.

It was exciting to see the famous Tigris River with its ancient bridge. To view the Mesapotamian plains from the bridge, to see some of the most fertile land in the world as well as the first place in History where animals were domesticated and crops planted.was quite exciting

Walking across this ancient bridge, you get a fantastic view of Diyarbakir's forbidding black basalt city walls, in the distance, on the hilltop. You can also see the Tigris River of Biblical fame, on which Diyarbakir stands

No problem about security. You can visit there easily. Somebody at Turkey tells lies about that region but most of them just stories

This bridge has historic meaning to me not only because of its age and beauty, but because it is located nearby the area of the river where my grandmothers and ancestors used to do their wash before the Armenian Genocide of 1915. You can access it by car from the Mardin Gate, and it's worth the short detour to see... More

This old bridge is called "Tigris Bridge" and more commonly amoung the locals "10 Holed Bridge" as there are 10 arcs on it. It dates back to 11th century. The bridge is quite impressive in terms of its grandeur, especially when one thinks it's almost 1000 years old. It's a nice spot to take photos. Other than that, it does... More
