MARDIN: THE SHINING CITY OF

MESOPOTAMIA

F6.3, 1/200s, ISO400

Located in Southeastern Turkey, Mardin is an enchanting city demonstrating a

cultural wealth and architectural heritage passed down through thousands of

years. It is considered to be one of the most unexplored places in Turkey. Stone

dwellings cascade down the hillside above the Mesopotamian plains, minarets

emerge from a baked brown maze of rambling lanes, a castle dominates the

old city, the golden stone houses, masterfully and elegantly built on the steep

slopes, achieve an extraordinary harmony between climate, geography, and

architecture, revealing the city to be an architectural treasure chest.
