I'm an English teacher and I live in Batman. I believe it's a great and easy way to invite people in your local home to give them chance to experience. I also like cultural interactions to know the way how other people lives. Here I am to let you know that maybe it's your last chance to see my unique nearby town which is a heritage of ancient times, because there is a dam project planned to be constructed by the government and such a beautiful place is probably going to be ruined by 2016. Thus I recommend you to visit before it's too late..

Cradle of Civilization & Spectacular View

Most probably it's going to be the first and the last time you will see Hasankeyf (Rocky-Town) as there is a dam project going to be done in 2016, unfortunately..

With historical sights galory, spectacular hiking, and traditional village atmosphere, Hasankeyf has far more to offer visitors than just its famous castle and bridge.
