Midyat Caves

Midyat Caves, one of the first settlements of Mardin city, sheds light on human history with its thousands of years of history. Since the beginning of life, one of the primary needs of mankind has been housing. Due to the lack of facilities of today, structures are often built by carved, patiently on the rocks. The people of Mardin, the cradle of civilizations, the heart of Mesopotamia, have been making living space in caves for thousands of years in accordance with this tradition. Named after Matiate, which means the city of caves, Midyat contains many caves as much as it deserve its name... Built with a necessity brought by its geographical characteristics, these cave houses also form rock and parallel cave culture. Midyat Caves, which exhibit the most beautiful examples of art and architectural understandings shaped from the past to the present, also provide information about the concepts of patience, especially of people who have lived in the past centuries. The houses in Midyat Caves, which were created as a result of great devotion, also give us information about the culture of social life of thousands of years ago, as they carry traces from people who have not yet moved into urbanization life. Among those most tourists influx, Midyat Caves, consisting of in Gizzelin, Shakolin, Firiye, Kefilsannur and Linveyri Healing Caves, are also called the starting point where the city's mystical texture is formed.
