All About Turkey - Information About Turkey - Traveling Turkey


Tut: Tut became a district (ilçe) in 1990 splitting from Besni. It is roughly 40 miles from Adıyaman with a population of 13,714 for the entire district. The town is 3,300 feet above sea level. The district’s main source income comes from “guest workers” abroad or from working in Turkish provinces like Adana and Mersin. Animal husbandry, vegetable and cotton farming are also important in the district. Due to its hilly terrain modern farming is difficult in the area and therefore most farming is done using primitive methods.

To accelerate the district’s development, 5 carpet weaving establishments were opened in Tut during the past several years.
