ABSTRACT
The vernacular, beehive-domed houses of Harran, which can be dated back approximately 150-200 years, are located in the southeastern region of Turkey. There are few published studies on these houses, and what studies do exist mainly address the entire area's ancient buildings, rather than the above-mentioned vernacular houses. Therefore, this paper presents information about the beehive-domed houses in Harran, including their history, relation to nature, present situation, value as relics of cultural heritage, and the current policies in place for their protection. By presenting here the cultural value of these houses and their unfortunate present status, this author expects to contribute to the protection and management policies of this valuable area.
