  • Nothing really interesting, just a bunch of old stones and the guides more interested in moving people on. Hard to enjoy whne they is pressure keep going
  • It was a quick 30-minute guided tour + a nice cafe serving saffron tea. Not even a half-day trip from Mardin.
  • Worth visiting but don't try to get there using buses as it is a long walk. Instead negotiate a fee with the taxi drivers for a return journey.
