Gift Suggestions

It would be a shame to leave Gaziantep without something for those back at home, so here are some ideas for gifts that are identified with the city: copperware, items inlaid with mother-of-pearl, yemeni shoes and Antepişi embroidery. In the historic bazaars, you will find copper items with amazingly fine workmanship; many decorative items made with mother-of-pearl inlay including chests, coffee tables, chairs, and trays; silver jewellery; and many kinds of yemeni, which are comfortable and good for the feet.

Yesemek Tour and Alternative

  • Çolaklar Stone Bridge
    Written by

    If you want to visit the ancient Roman bridge, head back towards the village of Yelliburun and as you pass the village of Şahmaran on your right, you will come to Çolaklar village. About 20 km from Yesemek Open Air Museum, and 1.5 km southeast of Çolaklar village, in an isolated spot in the middle of nowhere, lies a stone bridge, known as the Çolaklar Roman Stone Bridge. 

    The bridge, built over the Karasu brook, nowadays is only frequented by fishermen, shepherds and their flocks. On either side of the bridge there are the remains of a Roman road, also made from basalt stone. If you want to visit the bridge, the rocky terrain means you must be prepared to walk for about 500 m after you have parked your vehicle.

  • Hurşit Ağa Mansion
    Written by

    In the castle there are ornamental ponds, model animals, a children’s play area, and a traditional nomad tent decorated with wooden carvings and set up like an authentic wedding hall to demonstrate the local culture.

  • Fevzipaşa Train Station
    Written by

    Continuing on towards the district of İslahiye in a southwesterly direction, you will see on the right the historical Fevzipaşa Train Station which is used to shelter retired trains. 

    The building was constructed by German engineers as part of the Hicaz (Hejaz) Railroad Project.

  • Çerçil Castle
    Written by

    If you want to leave the prescribed route and visit one of the region’s alternative cultural treasures, we recommend a climb to Çerçil Castle.

    Heading away from the village of Yelliburun in a westerly direction for 10 km, you will arrive at Çerçil Castle, which is situated 600 m southwest of Çerçil village, and sits at the top of a natural hill. Some of the important findings from the castle are coloured ceramic pieces, showing that the settlement dates from the Middle Ages. The road that stretches from the İslahiye plains to the inner side of the Amanos mountains passes through the footslopes of the hill on which the castle sits. This suggests that the castle, for a period, held a position of strategic importance. If you want to see the castle ruins at the top, you should be prepared for an arduous climb of approximately one hour through dense shrubland.

  • Sheikh Sam Tomb
