Gaziantep is the capital city of the Gaziantep Province in Turkey. It is amongst the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world. The city has two central districts under its administration, Şahinbey and Şehitkamil, and the metropolitan area has a total population of 1,341,054 as of 2010. Gaziantep is the sixth largest city in Turkey and the largest city in the country's Southeastern Anatolia Region. Gaziantep is the probable site of the Hellenistic city of Antiochia ad Taurum (Antiochia in the Taurus Mountains). The ruins of the Doliche lie a few kilometers to the north of the city center and they are located in the natural setting of a forest designated a recreational area with picnic and camping facilities. Gaziantep is one of the most developed provinces of the region and is also one of the oldest, its history reaching as far back as the Hittites. Being the center of pistachio cultivation in Turkey including extensive olive groves and vineyards, Gaziantep is one of the important agricultural and industrial centres of Turkey.
