Gaziantep is one of those cities where you cant help but feel that it's alive. Its streets and buildings resemble the face of a man, bearing the marks of life itself. All around the city, traces of the last couple of millennia of humanity's history in particular can be seen. It greets us at times with an inscription at Karkam, at times with a recipe on the Zincirli reliefs, at times with a story engraved upon the Zeugma mosaics. All those are familiar with one ather and since they are complementary, time cant separate one from the other. The scent you sense when you are strolling down the streets of the city is the smell of that past. The journey to a living city begins when the streets of Gazian-tep draw you in. Every stop and every taste whisper a new story in your ear.
