Hasankeyf Castle, Batman, Turkey – Heroes Of Adventure

Hasankeyf Castle, Batman, Turkey 

Hasankeyf is a small village located along the banks of the Tigris River in southeastern Turkey.

It has been settled for perhaps as long as three millennia, though most cliff dwellings are around 2,000 years old. It was perhaps inhabited first by Assyrians and/or Urartians, and then most certainly by successive Roman, Byzantine, Turkic, and Arabic dynasties.

Hasankeyf will be flooded upon the completion of a dam project that has been in the works for a couple decades now.
