Fodor's Review

In the villages around Midyat are dozens of churches, many still in use and dating back to the 5th through 8th century. The area suffered considerably during the Kurdish uprising, and many Christians moved to Germany, Sweden, and Australia, though a small number are beginning to return and many visit in summer. The most extraordinary religious site is the Monastery of the Mother of God at Hah (Anıtlı in Turkish), probably from the 6th century, which has an elaborately carved classical interior and exterior.
