Norias (Water Wheels), Hamah

#1 of 6 in Things to do in Hamah
Must See
See seventeen wooden Norias (Water Wheels) along Orontes River, a site submitted as a tentative World Heritage Site. The norias transferred water to an aqueduct that further provided water to farms and the city. The 20 m (65.6 ft) long norias date back to 4th century, although some believe them to be even older. See the largest noria which provided water to the Great Mosque of Hama. In addition, you can see the aqueduct in a good condition. Few of them still work, however they remain today a tourist attraction. Add Norias (Water Wheels) and other attractions to your Hamah trip itinerary using our Hamah day trip planning app .
