Kocahisar is a village in Adiyaman province Kahta with the population of 426 in 2000. Main industry of the village is based on agriculture and stock raising.
Walking to Yeni-Kale in Kocahisar village from Arsameia. Kocahisar is west neighboring village of Kardut.
I walked up to the hillside of Yeni-Kale and took some photographs.
Yeni Kale (New Castle), is a Mameluke fortress from the 13th century AD, located at Kahta Kalesi village, near Eski Kahta (also called Kocahisar) village, near the city of Adiyaman. (Mameluke is an soldier of the slave native in the Islamic world. )
Left the castle of Yeni-Kale, walked through the village of Kocahisar, heading for Severan Bridge (Cendere Köprüsü).
The Severan Bridge (Cendere Köprüsü) is a late ancient Roman bridge located near the ancient city of Arsameia, Adıyaman in southeastern Turkey.
The bridge spans Cendere River, a tributary of Kâhta River on the provincial road from Kâhta to Sincik in Adıyaman Province. It is 120 m long and 7 m wide, simple, unadorned and majestic arch.
The bridge was built by four Commagenean cities in honor of the Roman Emperor Lucius Septimius Severus (193–211), his second wife Julia Domna, and their sons’ names as stated on the inscription in Latin on the bridge.
Karakus Tumulus, the artificial tumulus dates back to first Century B.C. Around the Tumulus there are four pillars, each of which 9 m high.
Karakus Tumulus was built by Commagene King Mithradates II and was dedicated to his mother Isias and his daughter called Aka.
On the sumitte of the hill, I noticed that two beautiful women have been sleeping for 2,000 years under my foot while taking photos, so went down the hill hurriedly.
Left the historic region, went to the Cendere River side restaurant and had late lunch.
This restaurant is famous for its fish dishes. But cuisine of fish is better in Japan.
After this, I will take a rest in the hotel. And I will head to Diyarbakır tomorrow.
