Strolling in Diyarbakır with Evliya Çelebi

Nazlı Delal Ensarıoğlu

In this project, I followed the footsteps of Evliya Çelebi in Diyarbakır and created my own itinerary in the historical Inner Castle District of the city. Starting by marking the places he visited during his Eastern travel, I zoomed in into the Diyarbakır province and quote his notes about the spaces included in his travel book “Seyahatname” which worked as a guidebook for my own visit of the area. While doing this, in my project his notes were translated into English and photographs from several time periods of the mentioned spaces, inevitably only after the mid-nineteenth century, given with the years when they were taken.
