Ok, time to get back to final parts of this. Tarsus doesn’t seem to promote itself very well to Christian visitors. But there is this museum, I didn’t get a picture of it from the outside, so heres this Streetmap view.
This concrete building, has market outside to buy home made local foods.
Inside the museum, there is a lot of early Islam like this grave stone and these rooms of how Ottoman people lived. There is a quite creepy severed hand of a woman that was dug up which was quite macabre.
There a large number of coins on display from the Roman, Greek, Byzantine, Akkadian – but not from Jewish people.
This sign board was quite shocking. Bad English, whited out bits, and ‘Cult Christianism’ and ‘showed the characteristics of a secret cult’ Umm, ok…..
This was the most disappointing museum I have seen in a long time.
