Kefrum Castle, which is situated in Diyarbakr’s Kulp district and is thought to be at least 5,000 years old by local historians, is waiting for its fans of nature and parachute sports. It is the only castle of the city built from brick material in the vicinity.
Kefrum Castle, which is located in the Kulp neighbourhood, is the only brick-built castle in the Diyarbakr region. The castle was at least 5,000 years old, and there was probably once a settlement there, according to Prof. Dr. Rfan Yldz, Dean of the Faculty of Art and Design at Dicle University and Head of the Amida Höyük Excavation, who conducted fieldwork in the area.
It is also evident that the tribes were consulted and given their agreement when the bey was appointed to the region during the Safavid dynasty, and this democratic government was carried out in the area. It is well known that numerous civilizations used the castle as their administrative hub. The complete castle consists of the inner castle and the outer castle. There are roughly ten building foundations and water cisterns inside the inner castle. The fort most recently served as a military outpost.
Prof. Dr. Rfan Yldz, Dean of the Faculty of Art and Design at Dicle University, said to a reporter for the hlas News Agency (UHA) that the location was the former Kulp district settlement and that the Kulp town was in this region.
Prof. Dr. Yldz stated that the district government relocated to its current location after 1899, adding:
“It did so to the village known as Pasor/Pasur at that time. We are in an old part of the world. It is believed that this area once hosted a settlement around 5,000 years ago. There is an agreement with the Hurrians. Earlier than that, there was possibly a village here. It is a geographically protected area and is particularly near to Kulp Brook. The triangle’s location led to the selection of Kulp, Muş, and Silvan as settlements at the same time.”
