The bridge has been restored, across the Tigris and gives good views of Diyarbakir. I love folk music, but the high pitched pipes that a local was entertaining the visitors with was too screechy for me!

The On Gözlü bridge is the "Welcome" sign to the city of Diyarbakir. Don't miss to pull over for a moment or two. The Tigris river and the bridge itself are both magnificent. Nice tea place just at the bank of the river.

At the Bridge there are nice Tea Gardens to relax in the shade at the riverbank and watch the bridge and old city walls.

Walking across this ancient bridge, you get a fantastic view of Diyarbakir's forbidding black basalt city walls, in the distance, on the hilltop. You can also see the Tigris River of Biblical fame, on which Diyarbakir stands

No problem about security. You can visit there easily. Somebody at Turkey tells lies about that region but most of them just stories
