  • This is where prophet Abraham was thrown in to the huge fire by nemrut and Allah ordered fire to be cool to Abraham and it is narrated that the fire turned into water and woods turned into the fishes.
  • Nice and historical place where Namrud thrown our profet Ibrahim (Pubh) to fire. 2014 I was at Sunliurfa and at that time I have visited this place.
  • This name means in english the "fish pool" This is not only an archaeological and tourist landmark, it also tells a historical story that took place with the prophet of God, the prophet of heavenly religions ibrahim peace be with him, the people in this city say that the valley of this pool is the same valley that ibrahim the prophet was thrown in after it was fullen with woods and fire to burn the prophet ibrahim when allah say to the fire to become cold and not to hurt the prophet, it is a known long story, otherwise beside the "balıklı göl" there is a castle it is the castle of the king namruod who wanted to burn the prophet, an old great castle. You should came to visit us and i grateful to be your guide.
  • One of the popular and touristic lake in this city. It's not bad.
