Haleplibahçe Mosaic Museum

Haleplibahçe Mosaic Museum

One of the highlights of the visual feasts in Sanliurfa, the city of modern museums, which has been the subject of thousands of years of historical heritage, is located in the center of the city. Haleplibahçe Mosaic Museum, incarnate hidden treasures... The floor mosaics of a villa that was unearthed during the excavations for the park and date back to the Roman period form the main lines of the museum. The mosaic of the Amazons can be seen in the museum with the mosaic of the story of Akhilleus the hero of Greek mythology. It should be noted that the example is one of the world's rare mosaics that address the appearance of mythological Amazons, a mysterious race. The short-haired Amazonian woman, pictured on a horse in the mosaic, is seen with her exotic jewellery and with a spear, a war instrument in her hand. On the other hand, the Mosaic of Orpheus, which was finally brought back to our country in 2015, is another precious part of the Haleplibahçe Mosaic Museum, following the process of returning from the United States to Turkey, which has been on the agenda for a long time. The Orpheus mosaic, dated in 194, is striking with artist signature and visual details on it. Haleplibahçe Mosaic Museum, which is home to numerous mosaics reached by archaeological sites in the region, can be visited within certain hours every day except Mondays.
