The cruel ruler's giant slingshot is represented by two Corinthian columns still standing atop the citadel. The enormous carp in Balıklı Göl and Ayn-i Zeliha is considered sacred and, according to legend, anyone catching it will turn blind. Next to the Gölbaşı area is the Dergah complex of mosques and parks which surrounds the birth cave of the Prophet Abraham, the Hazreti Ibrahim Halilullah (Prophet Abraham, Friend of God). This complex of mosques and medresses was built and rebuilt over the centuries and is a place of pilgrimage. Apart from the holy places, Urfa's bazar is perhaps the most colorful of Anatolia.
