Hama

Hama :

The city is  200km  to the north of Damascus .  It is  a very  ancient city, which has flourished continually since ancient times , and has known the successive civilizations of the Fertile Crescent.

Hama has a long heroic history in defending  Syria  against  foreign invasions.

 

One of the outstanding battles was that of Qarqar , where the Assyrian army  was defeated in  853 B.C. Unfortunately ,  few of its  ancient relics have been preserved.

However, Hama is well known for its enormous waterwheels ('norias') on the Orontes , which are as old as Hama itself
