Dara Castle (Daras Anastasiupolis)

Founded approximately at 35 km to the north west of Nusaybin in the beginning of the 6th century AD against the rising threats from the Sassanids, ancient city of Dara was named Anastasiopolis after her founder Anastasius.

A typical Roman city with her interesting rock tombs and churches, necropolis, cisterns, bridges, city walls, agora and public areas, Dara is waiting to be discovered as the Ephesus of the Southeastern Anatolia region.
