“Second only to the Great Wall of China”
These four-gated walls were restored in 349 AD during the reign of Constantinus III of Rome, and they surround the old part of the city. They are also famed for being the second largest walls in the world after the Great Wall of China.

Diyarbakır Surları (Diyarbakır Ramparts) are wonderful, historical and touristical. I felt like a old people who lives in Before Christ. Here is at least 7000 years old. Every-one should see that place who lives in the world. Thank you!

These walls have great historical value, they well deserve a visit. It is a shame that much of the old city has been torn down by the government, with the excuse of fighting terrorism. Large areas of it are now being transformed by developers into...More

City Walls of Diyarbakır are very important to understand city's genuine history. It is a good opportunity to take a step to be witness of that. Walk alonside walls, climb on them (there are some available points) and take a deep breath of Diyarbakır.

The original walls date back to the Roman period and have been repaired and restored by the Byzantines, Arabs and Turks since. What few people have commented on is that this is the longest city circuit surviving intact in the world! There are several places...More

The city walls are all around Diyarbakir old city. It is nice to walk down from end to end on both sides and there are gardens on both sides so you can also stop for a tea under the trees together with many locals.

The ancient city of Diyarbakir, or Amed (it's second name), once was surrounded by a wall. This wall was at the time built to protect the city from attacks and such. Now, you can view leftovers of that wall in many parts of Diyarbakir. Unfortunately,...More

Quite impressive structures. Önce again, it is unbelievable that there are not references to the history of the construction itself. The walls seem byzantine and are well restored. Around one can find parks full of green and lots of (turkish) coffee and (turkish) tea places.

If you mean there are hotels within the old city, then yes, especially budget hotels around Dag Kapi at the north end. You can find suggestions in most of the guidebooks. The buildings in the area per se might not be... More
