more about Cahit Sitki Taranci in Diyarbakir:



 The history of the building which is located on Cahit Sýtký Tarancý Street in the Cami-i Kebir Section of the city at Diyarbakýr´s centre goes back to 1820. It has survived to the present day as one of the most beautiful examples of the Diyarbakýr civic architecture.

The house was originally built on the basis of men´s and women´s quarters but the male quarters (selamlýk) were torn down later. It is a two storey structure built from cut black basalt stone.

An introvert architectural layout was adopted for this building where all the façades are oriented towards an inner courtyard. The single storey wooden entrance opens up to the courtyard with a corridor.

The various spaces are arranged behind the façades taking seasonal climatic conditions into consideration. The white decorations called "cýz" or "kehal" were also used here in their best form.

The House of Cahit Sýtký Tarancý was transferred to our Ministry in 1973. It was rearranged with the personal belongings of the poet and artefacts of ethnographic value from Diyarbakýr area, and opened to the public as a museum-residence.
