Our wish came true when we found these four houses, each older than 100 years, in the heart of the old city. They were built out of the soft stone, quarried in and around Antep and known for their capacity to keep the habitats cool in the heat of the summer and warm and easy to heat in the winter. With their 4 meter high walls surrounding the courtyards, the old houses in Antep were designed to reflect the cultural and religious background, which put high priority on privacy. Once in the courtyard, you are cut-off from the sound of the busy city right outside.
Gaziantep, the biggest city in the Southeast of Turkey and the sixth biggest in Turkey, is one of the first settlements in Anatolia.
Ruins which belong to the Stone Age, Chalcolithic and Copper ages; Hittite, Mitani, Assyrian, Roman and Byzantine, Islam and Turkish – Islamic Period can be traced everywhere in the area
The region was under the Hittite control in the 1700s BC. The ancient city of Duluk, which is north of the city today, was an important religious center of the Hittites. During the period of Caliph Omar, as a result of the religious wars to spread the Islam out of the Arab Peninsula, the Muslim troops defeated the Byzantine army at the War of Yermuk in 636 under the command of lyaz Bin Ganern. The area, including Gaziantep region became Muslim soil, its people converted to Islam and Omeriye Mosque was built in this period as a symbol of the conquest.
After the Manzikert victory in 1071, Suleiman Shah conquered Antep and its surroundings in 1084 and annexed the area to the Seljuk Empire. On August 20,1516 Yavuz Sultan Selim Khan came to Antep and stayed here for three days. After the Mercidabik victory against Memaluks in 1516 the city came under the reign of the Ottoman Empire.
Gaziantep and the surrounding area, which was occupied by the French and English troops after the World War I, received recognition everywhere in the world for its defense and unique heroism which amazed the world. TheTurkish Grand National Assembly granted Antep the “GAZi” (war hero) title on February 8, 1921 because of this achievement.
Gaziantep, which was called Ayintap, Antep, Kala-i Fusus, Hantap,Antep and finally Gaziantep got its name from the depth of its history.
