It was determined that this settlement was one of the first settled places. After we visit the Great Mosque. It is known as the fifth Harem-i Şerif in the Islamic world. After the conquest of Diyarbakir by the Islamic armies, the largest Christian temple in the province, the Mar-Tama church, M.S. It was converted into a mosque in 639. It was repaired in 1091 during the time of the Great Seljuk Sultan Melikshah. The mosque, which was damaged in earthquake and fire in 1115, was repaired in 1240 with the help of the people. This first Islamic structure, which has great value in terms of the fountain in its courtyard and the inscriptions from various periods, was built with black stones.
