An Ancient Mystery

The Great Ring Wall of The World in Diyarbekir in Northern Kurdistan is an architectural master piece. It is the second great ring wall of the world but the first when it comes to citadells. It is 5600 m long. It has 82 towers, the wall is 4 m wide, and 17 m high.

It is believed that it was built a thousand years after the agricultural revolution that took place in this particular area. Even today Diyarbekir vicinity is the Middle East's wheat stocks. Cultivation Revolution (Agrar Revolution) took place for about 11 thousand years ago. When the people need to protect production surplus against looting it is believed the citadells became a social need.

The Roman Emperor Justinian let it be renovated year 349 AD
