Çarşi Konağı

Turkish in Diyarbakır

This restored 450-year old house conceals a leafy courtyard and poignant reminders of its former Jewish owners. (Look for the carved Star of David in the wooden ceiling). Kebaps, grilled fish and salads are on offer, and you'll probably be invited for an extended çay session with friendly Diyar locals. It's popular with local women, so good for female travellers.
