At the very centre of the composition there is a chicken coop built in the shape of a table or a side table surrounded by 23 birds or fowls taken by Noah onto his ship and behind this group there are various wild and domestic animals. It is from the 4th century.Misis Mosaic Museum has been enriched with the transfer of works which were taken to the Adana Archeological Museum after the Misis Mound excavations and the mosaics which were previously kept there, and by bringing together the dispersed architectural elements found around the Misis.

  • Almost on the outskirts of the city is one of the most interesting objects, a Mini Museum of local antique mosaics. It is quite small, but on a variety of mosaic designs capable of surprise. Instead of the usual already and yet eye ornaments-completely detailed portrayals of life, nature, wildlife and even constellations. From the Centre can be reached in 20 minutes by bus.
