Fortunately, the most easily accessible stretch of walls is also the most interesting in terms of inscriptions and decoration. Start near the Mardin Kapısı close to the Deliller Han, a stone caravanserai now home to the Otel Büyük Kervansaray. Be sure not to miss Nur Burcu, the Yedi Kardeş Burcu (Tower of Seven Brothers), with two Seljuk lion bas-reliefs, which you can only see from outside the walls, and the Malikşah Burcu (Tower of Malik Şah, also called Ulu Badan).
