The history of Şırnak dates back thousands of years – even before Noah’s Flood. In fact, Şırnak is where the Ark landed arrived after the flood waters receded, giving humanity its second start at life.
The cuisine of Şırnak generally features the typical characteristics of Eastern Anatolian Cuisine. Meat is the mainstay of most Şırnak dishes; one reason for this is that many of the local people earn their living from animal husbandry.
