Travel Photo of the Day: Mardin, Turkey

Mardin, Turkey

This is one of those destinations that is not on the main tourist trail of Turkey, but this town and the rest of its surroundings are steeped in rich history, glorious sights and an insanely divine experience. I am referring to the town of Mardin in South-Eastern Turkey that used to be an important point in the yester year map of Mesopotamia. Narrow lanes, stone architecture, a complete desert like environment, Mardin offers an interesting mix of Syrian orthodox churches, mosques and many other temples. In fact, the world’s oldest temple at Gobekle Tepe is not far away and the town of Midyat is another one that is steeped in lots of history and one that is located a short drive away.
