Overview

Harran, one of the ancient settlements of Northern Mesopotamia, is a region that has witnessed the history of Anatolia thousands of years ago. In Harran, which blends different cultures with tolerance, it is possible to meet the subtleties of Arab culture as the majority of the population is of Arab origin.

Perhaps the most interesting part of Harran is his cone-shaped domed houses built in Trap technique. The domed Harran houses used for 150-200 years are not similar in the world.

It is said that Harran houses, which resembled a few funnels lined side by side and kept summers cool and winters warm, were used in ancient times to crush and mix a special land with rose oil.

Also, worth mentioning that world's first university is in Harran.

It is also famous for The Battle of Carrhae that was fought in June 53 BC which is known as one of the worst defeats for Rome since Cannae.
