Adana


Adana is the 5th largest city in Turkey (after Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir and Bursa). As of 2006, Adana had an estimated population of 1,271,894.

The city is known for its rich history (going back 3,000 years, and linked to the ancient city of Tarsus). Famous buildings in the area include:
  • The Stone Bridge of Adana (Turkish: Tasköprü) which spans the Seyhan River. This bridge was originally built during the reign of the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD, but has been damaged by earthquakes many times over the centuries, and repaired - including during the reign of the Byzantine Emperor Justinian I in the 6th century, the Umayyad caliph al-Walid II during the 7th century, and the caliph al-Mu'tasim during the 8th century. As a result, only 14 of the original 21 arches remain, but nevertheless, the bridge is the oldest bridge in the world which is still in use today.

  • Yilanli Kale - The ruins of a castle dating back to 782.

  • The Great Clock (Turkish: Büyük Saat) - A large clock tower built in 1882. The clock was damaged during the period of French occupation (1918 to the early days of 1922), but rebuilt in 1935. The clock tower is a popular local symbol, and its image can be seen on the city's coat of arms.

  • Bazaar of Cauldron-Makers (Turkish: Kazancilar Çarsisi) - The old bazaar.

  • Bath of the Bazaar - (Turkish: Çarsi Hamami) - A Turkish bath dating back to 1519, which is adjacent to the old bazaaar.
Adana is known within Turkey, and by Turkish people, for its hot weather, oranges (which grow in the area), salgam suyu (a drink, which despite the name literally translated from Turkish meaning "turnip juice", is actually made from salted and spiced purple carrot pickles, and only flavored with turnips), and of course Adana kebabs, which are long grilled meat kebabs that originally come from the city.

Okurla bulusan kitaplarimiz hem Adana icin bir ilk olmasi, hem de Adana'nin koklu kent halk kulturune bir armagan olmasi acisindan yuksek deger tasimaktadir. (Tanitim Bulteninden)
