This bridge near Silvan-Diyarbakir over the Batman river was built in 1147 during the Artuk period by Timurtash bin Ilgazi bin Artuk. It is 150 m long and 7 m wide, 19 m in height. It was built using coloured stones and has been restored over the years and has reached our present times.

Diyarbakır-Batman karayolu üzerinde 1147 yılında artukoğulları döneminde inşa edilmiştir. ortadaki büyük sivri kemerin ayakları kayalıklara oturtulmuştur. kemerin her iki ucunda 4.50 x 5.30 m. boyutlarında köprünün güvenliğini sağlayacak nöbetçilerin oturması ve kervan yolcularının dinlenmesi için yapılmış birer oda mevcuttur.

Albert Gabriel de köprü içine şöyle demektedir: “Modern statik hesabının olmadığı devirde bu açıklıkta o zaman için böyle bir eser hayranlık ve takdiri muciptir.

selçuk alagöz bir turne sırasında gördüğü malabadi köprüsü hakkında bir hikaye yazar ve bu şarkıyı besteler.

 

Malabadi Köprüsü, Malabadi Köprüsü

Orda basladi bitti, su garibin öyküsü

Karsiki asiretten bir kiza gönül verdim

Aski ugruna hergün o köprüye giderdi

siirtin daglarinda, uçan kusu vururdu

Fatmayi oksadikça, gayri sükun bulurdu

Off garibim off

Off Garibim off

Karar hakki seyhteydi, Fatmanin babasinda

Kati ve insafsizdi, bu askin karsisinda

Kararliydi zalim seyh onlari öldürmeye

Yine bir seher vakti, pusu kurdu köprüye

Tabancalar patladi, sevgililer susmustu

Malabadi köprüsü aska mezar olmustu

 

The Grand Mosque of Diyarbakır as it is known today was built in 1091 by the Seljuk ruler Malik-Shah. The design influenced by the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus, used the locally found black basalt rock. The mosque suffered extensive damage in a fire in 1155. It is the oldest and one of the most significant mosques in Mesopotamia. Before the Muslim capture of Diyarbakir in 639, there was a church at the same location. Even after the conversion of the church into the mosque, it was used by both Muslims and Christians. It is believed that there was a pagan worship place, here, well before the Christianity.

I've made this photo the last day of my Iraqi reportage, in Diyarbakir (Turkey), inside a Mosque. I think is a really beautiful scene with this lightning and the old man who was studying the Koran.

Thanks for your comments and favs!

I'm just came back from the Iraq, the situation there is really bad... I went form Diyarbakir (Turkey) along the front of war from the turkish border to Zakho, Dohuk and Erbil. And back in Turkey after 1 week.

There is massive police presence in Van, where many of the locals celebrate their Kurdish roots at a time of high tension following the killing of thirteen Turkish soldiers in Diyarbakir last week by Kurdish terrorists. The Kurdish colours of red, yellow and green were out in force at this music festival and the police kept their distance, albeit dressed in riot gear with armoured vehicles parked in the nearby streets, three just outside our hotel.

The countryside west from Diyarbakir is extremely vast and there are hardly any trees. It's difficult to escape from the heat of the sun here so you've only one option: continue your journey.

Well, wednesday I will start another reportage: Iraq. I will take a plane from Venice to Turkey (Diyarbakir) and after I will enter in Iraq (Kurdistan), from Zakho > Duhok > Erbil, so in the 7/8 day I will publish less photos :-)

Thanks for your comments and favs!

Church of St. George - Diyarbakir

  

The construction date of the church located at the citadel is unknown.The church considered to belong to A.C 3rd century due to its architectural style and materials used (the Roman period)has been turned into a bath by a domed section added to the western wing during the Assyrians period. I've enjoyed this long exposure in the last days of December. It was wonderful to witness such a date...

Diyarbakir, Sur 2017. Subhi et Mehmet vivent à Sur depuis 30 ans. En chassant les habitants du quartier, l'état veut briser toute une communauté. Dans Sur, on vit dehors, on s'entraide entre voisins et on survit de petits boulots. Toutes choses impossibles dans les nouveaux quartiers construits pour reloger les populations, et isoler les familles en les dispersant.

In Turkey/Syria/Iraq and Middle East, they drink something like 20/30 cups of tea everyday! They love it! This photo was taken in Diyarbakir (Turkey) during my comeback from Iraq.
