Perhaps one of the most underrated archaeological sites in Turkey, the ancient Mesopotamian ruins of Dara, located near the Syrian border, in which has actually only been opened to the public fairly recently. The site dates back to the 6th century BC, and was first established as a military headquarters by Persian King Darius I.
