In old Turkish Literature, the literary work about cities is called "ÅŸehrengiz" or "sehrasub". Many poems about other cities were also written in the form of gazel. One of these cities is Haleppo. In our study, the poems about Haleppo as a solely poem and beyit and parts of prose writings about the history, culture and commercial features of Haleppo are combined. Thus, it is tried to show the reflection of Haleppo as an aesthetic element in literature and at the same time, it is called attention that these kinds of poem are important sources in terms of the history of Haleppo.
