That morning, I was walking around the hotel in Diyarbakır.
After breakfast we left the hotel going to east for Silvan.
Silvan is a town in the province of Diyarbakir in eastern Turkey on the road between Diyarbakir and Siirt. The town has a population of around 41,500 inhabitants in 2012. Most residents are Kurds.
From the town center of Silvan, we moved to the Batman River that is a major tributary of the Tigris.
The Batman River originates in the Anti-Taurus Mountains and flows approximately from north to south, passing near the town of Batman and forming a natural border between the Batman Province and Diyarbakır Province. From here there is a dam upstream and a Roman arch bridge downstream.
Batman Dam is built on the Batman River, north of Batman, in southeastern of Turkey. It was constructed between 1986 and 1999 with a hydroelectric power plant.
The dam is designed to service an irrigation area of 37,744 ha (93,270 acres).
The Malabadi Bridge is an arch bridge spanning the Batman River near the town of Silvan. The construction began in the year of 1147 during the Artuqid period, and completed in 1154.
Through the arch of Malabadi Bridg, a modern bridge and Batman Dam. Unfortunately, the bridge was under restoration, I did not cross the bridge. And we went to the east afterwards.
