From Mardin Gate of the Diyarbakır walls, I walked to the Dicle Bridge. It took 30 minutes. (Dicle means the Tigris river. On Gözlü Köprü means ten eyes bridge.)
Walking along the Tigris River, arrived at the Dicle Bridge presently.
The Dicle Bridge is a historic bridge in Diyarbakır over the river Tigris in southeastern Turkey.
Completed in 1065, it numbers ten arches with a total length of 178 m. Hence, it is locally called also “On Gözlü Köprü” / “Pira Dehderî” (literally: Ten Arches Bridge).
Its another name is the Silvan Bridge due to its position being on the road to Silvan.
When I was a child, my country was so poor, learned the Tigris and Euphrates basin as one of the birthplaces of the world culture. At that time, I did not think that I will come to visit the place. While looking at the Tigris River, I remembered my old rural school at the same time.
