Home to dozens of different civilizations and hundreds of different cultures, the architectural structure of this city has a property of history page that has moved from the past to the present. These houses, built on the southern skirts of the Mazı Mountains, seem to have stacked on each other at first glance, but in fact it has this effect due to its natural location. Mardin houses were designed as if they were a stepping stone down from the castle on the hill.
