Hasakah

About -Tourism Guide


Hasakeh is one of the biggest Syrian Muhafazet in area. It is the most important source of wheat and oil. It is difficult for researchers to know the oldest history of this Muhafazet because the excavations have not finished yet and it is believed that the Khabour valley was within Sourbatu kingdom which extended from Ailaam city to Toros mountains in the third millennium B.C.

Monasteries and temples were erected in the seventh century A.D. During the Abbassite era, Ras Al-Ain became an important center for the trade convoys between Baghdad and Raqqa. Khadour is the main river in the Muhafazet it springs from Turkey and Syria. The place includes a number of sites which are worthy to become tourist destinations due to the numerous mineral springs and historical hills such as Tal Al-Khweira which is located between Khabour and Bliekh rivers in the midway between Ras Al-Ain and Tal Abyadh near the northern Syrian border. An Assyrian city was discovered with its history going back to the third millennium B.C. A huge double wall was discovered since the beginning of excavation works in the form of a circle. In the eastern part of the wall, lies a huge temple and a number of buildings. Along Street appears near the remains of a huge temple with a long plate going back to the Arcadian era in the third millennium B.C.

wheat and cotton is one way of describing the far north-east of Syria. This far-flung, vast region stretching from the Tigris to the Euphrates, is not only the bread basket of the country, but also a source of energy since the Syrians began extracting oil from around Karatchok (100 km east of Kemichli). Major construction works, like the building of several dams on the Euphrates and Khabour rivers, have been carried out to make this possible. This has enabled Hassakeh, capital of the governorate, to become the region’s most important agricultural market. This beautiful town surrounded by greenery and flowers is a pleasant place to stop in.
