The ancient cultures related to this region and the importance of the river in ancient documents. You feel the atmoshere. Several restaurants along the river have an ancient cooling system as tables and chairs are situated within the river and you feel cold water streaming around your feet.

The city's mayor as been trying to renovate and maintain the historic city wall encircling the city despit the lack of funds fom the central government, whichhas also blocked charitable help from Germany and others.

However, the city walls remain intact and thy encircle the old city. You can go up the steps of the walls and enjoy the breath taking views of the River Tigris and the valleys below.

Spring is the best time to visit Diyarbakir, winter is cold and summer is hot..spring is perfect. The same Mayor is also investing money into the renovation of the Armenian and other churches, and monasteries, temples ,and museums. There are regular plays at the culture house. I suggest you drive towards the city of Mardin if you have time..it is equally incredibly ancient and mystical built upon a mountain side.

During my childhood when at school we were learning of ancient cultures developing on banks of Tigris river I would never imagine that I would be able to visit and see the historical sites I was reading about so long time ago. Through all the ages and centuries this river keeps on flowing as only living organism that survived all this time.

Having always read about this mighty river and it being a cradle of civilization the river can be viewed from many stope en route to Diyarbakir and in other areas in the South East without making a special trip.

I was a bit disappointed when I see that there was rubbish in the river. I wish people would be more careful on keeping this river more cleaner. But anyway, if you need to escape from the hot weather and want to chill out, yes right go there, you may even need a blanked which can be supplied by the cafeterias..

I grew up learning about Mesopotamia civilization at the banks of the river Tigris. When I visited Diyarbakir, I wanted to see the river myself that was the cradle to one of the oldest civilizations of human kind.
