Savur Castle

Savur Castle, which is referred to as the "Necklace of Mardin", is one of the most important works reached today from the Byzantine period. Up to 4500 BC, the campus acts as a bridge connecting Mesopotamia and Anatolia. Savur, which was founded on the slope of the castle and took its name, is a district of Mardin today. The first information in history about Savur Castle, known as one of the most special buildings in the stone city, is from the Sasanid period. Savur Castle, one of the oldest and most magnificent buildings in Mardin dating back to hittite, is especially referred to as the necklace of the city as a result of the work of Savur Municipality in recent years. Savur Municipality, which began work in recent years to bring Savur Castle to cultural tourism, is restoring the castle accordance to its original. As a result of the works, the castle is illuminated by mystical lighting and provides a stand-alone integrity between the hills of the city. It makes you to feel when the structure is viewed from the top of the hill the entire city looks like as if it is made up of a head and neck also in taht neck of Savur castle is sparkling necklace... The castle, which carries its natural beauty to the present day by preserving its historical texture for thousands of years, is one of the tourist areas of the city.
