800 year old hamman gets a new destination
In August the 800 year old Artuklu Hamam in Hasankeyf, Turkey is successfully relocated over a distance of 2.7 km to a higher situated new cultural park. The monumental hammam is positioned near Tomb Zeynel Bey, which was also relocated in May 2017.
The cultural heritage of Hasankeyf is threatened to become flooded as a result of the construction of a dam. By the relocation and restoration this important cultural heritage can be preserved for the future.
