Saraykapı, which was closed to traffic by Diyarbakır Metropolitan Municipality due to restoration works, has been reopened for pedestrians.
The restoration works carried out by the Metropolitan Municipality with the motto of “Resurrection in the Walls” continue at full speed in Diyarbakır Castle, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

After interventions such as reinforcing the stones at risk of falling, joint construction and facade cleaning, the barriers were removed and Saraykapı was opened to pedestrian traffic again.
