Mardin was once home to a large Christian community and the churches still remain in the city, although only several are functioning. One of the still functioning Assyrian churches is the Kirklar Kilisesi. It's on a narrow lane, a hundred yards or so west of Mardin museum. The church which was built in the name of Mor Behnam and his sister Saro in the midst of 6th century is also known as Kirklar Church. Both names come from early period Christian legends. Spiritual and administrative affairs of the Assyrian people were governed from this church after Mardin became Patriarchate in 1293. Patriarchs and metropolitans used to live in the rooms of an edifice which was built with cut stones in the courtyard of the church. A new centre for the patriarch was built in the place of these rooms in 1850, a council room was added by broadening it in 1925. Its known that a school was opened there in 1799 and it was operative between the years 1825 1899. Education continued until 1928.

Thank you all folks for the C/C's on my previous upload. My special thanks go to Ray (Rayme330) and Billy (williamsloan) for their much valued UA's.

Yet another fascinating set, Nezih, but I find it difficult to progress past the magnificent door in V1. It has a magnetic attraction!
Superb.
