Historic City of Harput
Historic City of Harput is part of the Tentative list of Turkey in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
Harput was an ancient Urartu fortress town. The castle lies on a ridge. It has subsequently been used by the Byzantines, Artukids, Seljuks and Ottoman state. The town has a number of historic mosques and a church. The discovery of the Harput relief, showing the conquest of the castle, put the origins of Harput back to 4,000 years ago.
