Tour overview

Kahramanmaras was known as "Markasi" or "Maraj" in earliest ages. Located 78 kilometers north of Gaziantep, the province stands as a site of history, having a long past filled with numerous invasions. It was once the capital of Gurgum, a Hittite State in the 12th century BC. Romans called the city as Germanicia during the 1st century AD, and Ottomans renamed it as "Mer'as" later on.There is an archaeological museum inside the citadel, where Hittite sculptures are on display. Other important remains in the area are the Ulu (Grand) Mosque and the Tas (Stone) Medrese, both dating back to the 15th century, together with the Hatuniye and Haznedarli Mosque of the Ottoman period.This province, the original name of which was Maras, had shown such valour during the War of Independence, that it was then given the title "Kahraman", which means "Hero" in Turkish language. The speciality of the region is its famous ice cream made of fine goat milk and wild orchid flower roots growing in the surrounding mountains. Carved wooden furnitures, copper and brass works and handworks of glided silver thread are also traditional. Nature sports such as caving, hunting and fishing, besides plateaus and picnicking areas, are also typical of this area.

But soldiers erect a wall at the mouth of the cave to trap them inside, and the seven youths end up sleeping here for centuries. Thinking they have slept just one night, they are unaware when they wake up that a very long time has passed. Only when one of the youths leaves the cave to go in search of food, does he realize that everything has changed.Legends are rife regarding the location of the cave of the seven sleepers, a story common to both Christian and Islamic belief. The Afsin Seven Sleepers Complex is located in the town of the same name in Kahramanmaras province. This complex, dedicated to the seven friends, was built near a cave on a rocky outcrop known as Ashab al-Kahf, which has been regarded as sacred since antiquity. As the Quran tells us, not long after their reawakening the friends who had slept for years in the cave died and a mosque (church) was built next to the cave mouth by those who had witnessed the incident.
