DIYARBAKIR-In the restoration work carried out in the historical Grand Mosque located in Sur province of Diyarbakır, there were 3 separate porticos and remains belonging to the Roman period of 500 years before Islam.

Founded by the Regional Directorate of Foundations in 2012, it was learned that the porticos were located on the lower floor of the house on the western edge of the Grand Mosque.

Dicle University [DU] Faculty of Education Instructor Assoc. Dr. İrfan Yıldız, spoke to ILKHA said that the porticos those were found are also at the gate of the Mesudiye Madrasa, Shafi'i and Hanafi mosques.

Expressing that the Great Mosque was a business center in Roman times, Assoc. Dr. Yıldız, stated that after the Romans accepted Christianity, the church that was built in the place and after Islam was ruled over by areas, the Grand Mosque was built on the demolished church.

Expressing the presence of the original of the porticos from the Roman period in front of the Mesudiye Madrassa, Yıldız said, “The excavations on the eastern edge of the Great Mosque revealed the remains of Roman period porches. We know that there is a forum in the Roman period, the trade center, where the Grand Mosque is located. Later, with the Romans accepting Christianity, we know that churches and outbuildings were built here. On the northeastern side of Grand Mosque there are the porticos from the Roman period in front of the Mesudiye Madrasa. There are indications that this porticos are turning the courtyard of today's mosque from four directions. We know that some of these traces are present at the western gate of the building called the 'Shafi'i Mosque', again at the western gate of the Hanafi section, and that this porticos continues westward. Therefore, the part of the western side of the Grand Mosque today also belongs to the Roman period of the outbreaks.”

On the other hand, the restoration of other historical buildings, which have been damaged due to conflicts in the house where the porticos are located and in the district, continues by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanism.
