Erenköy Minaret

Travelling southeast for 6 km, you will come to the village of Erenköy and see the minaret of the Erenköy Mosque in the middle of the dam lake. 

This minaret – appearing  as if it had just sprouted from the Euphrates – has three galleries. Visitors to the region often mistake the minaret in Savaşan village, near Halfeti and opposite Rumkale, for this one. Both minarets emerge from the water above flooded mosques, but the Savaşan minaret has a single gallery.
