Saffron Abbey; Dayrulzafaran takes its name from saffron flowers that grew wild around the church. It is founded over an ancient Sun Temple that probably dates back to the days when Mardin was first inhabited. The Monastery was founded first during 5th century A.D.. It is still inhabited today and continues to be one of the most important training centers of Assyrian (Suryani) monks.
