  • Historical place. If you are in Urfa, you have to see it. At night, it is greater for photos. You can feed fishes.  more »
  • There are numerous historic sites associated with Abraham because Islamic believers, but also bring a sense of luck, the Protestant believers in the Catholic or around large and small mosque and adjacent to the Park Café is a great place to stay, look to be a little bit if you take the time out of the pond in the mosque in deulreobogireul on the inside of a large number of tourists from outside the recommended a little far, blushing a hassle-free, and even the old mosque is a great place with a mentality

  • “Balikli Gol”/ “Pool of Abraham” is a must see in Urfa! The pool of Abraham, known as Balikli Göl in Turkish. As a major landmark of the region, it is visited by many Turks as well as foreign tourists. This pool is believed by Muslims to be the place where Abraham was thrown into the fire by Nimrod. Abraham is mentioned in three major religions, Christianity, Islam and Judaism but in Islam, he is called Ibrahim. I was told by the locals, even though all the fish were dark gray or black there is also white fish which can be only seen by a person who is truly blessed and saint in life. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see the white fish.
  • Very nice place, worth a second visit at night when the lights turn on. All the other points of interest in town are within walking distance.
  • Perfect historical place to visit. I believe this is the main attraction when visiting Sanliurfa.
  • Incredible history, please let the kids around the lake explain to you the story
  • It's historical and a beautiful place for visitors in Sanliurfa.
