Excavations show that Harran is one of the oldest continuously inhabited places on earth. The area is filled with ruins of ancient building and remains of walls and other structures. The fortress in the eastern part of town is worth a visit, as is the 8th-century Ulu Cami (mosque). Harran is known as the Village of Beehive-shaped Houses and examples of the strange-shaped dwelling can be seen everywhere.

There are several hotels and restaurants in town, but most people prefer to stay in Urfa, 37 km to the northwest, where facilities and connections with the rest of the country are better. Harran lies in Kurdish southeastern Anatolia, 640 km southeast of Ankara.
