Comments[edit]

Hey, I guess the population here needs fixing http://www.tuik.gov.tr/jsp/duyuru/upload/adnks_Harita_TR/HaritaTR.html when we check this link (Official Office of Statistics) Adana has 2 006 650 residents in it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.99.14.171 (talk) 17:36, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

geografy[edit]

I think we should add geografy cilimate and geology.. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 212.12.136.186 (talk) 09:39, 6 February 2007 (UTC).

ancient Greek name[edit]

What is the ancient Greek name, antioch in cilicia? modern Greek name is irrelevant DenizTC 04:16, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

I want to ask the same question. What is the Greek name during Byzantine era? Adana or Atana?--Qijiang ok (talk) 16:59, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Transportation[edit]

I think transportation needs more information, especially buses, as Adana being a major transfer route from Western Turkey to Southeastern Turkey and Middle East. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Seyhan668 (talkcontribs) 16:05, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Arzava ?[edit]

According to Chronology section Adana was a part of Arzawa between 1500-1333 BC. Any reference ? This Wiki , like most other sources locates Arzawa in West Anatolia, (Lydia region) which is much further in the west. But probably, Adana was apart of another state, namely Kizzuwatna. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 08:25, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Yenice meeting[edit]

In section Modern Era there is a photo of İnönü with Churchill. The photo shows an important meeting. But technically the caption of the image is not right. Actually the meeting was held in Yenice a small town in Mersin Province. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 16:47, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

I have simply changed it to "near Adana" for now. Hans Adler 19:01, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

It is true that Yenice Station is in Mersin Province, but in this case it is not important. The meeting was meant to be done in Adana, but İnönü wanted to have it at the countryside to show Churchill that the country is not ready to get into a war. In many history books the meeting is mentioned as Adana meeting. Adana is also the closest major city to that railway station. Nevertheless, if we can not make a consensus on this information to stay on Adana article, we can think of removing it.Seyhan668 (talk) 14:43, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Adana Governor[edit]

Governor is the governor of the Adana province, not the city of Adana. On the infobox of the cities in Turkey, governor names shall be removed. Seyhan668 (talk) 12:27, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Newroz in Adana.jpg[edit]

I had placed this picture at the demographics section, but it's been deleted twice without giving any reason. This picture does not involve any politics, it is a celebration of a holiday of an ethnic group which is almost a third of the population of Adana. Please discuss here before deleting any picture. Seyhan668 (talk) 12:27, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Oceans 12 picture[edit]

This picture does not represent Adana for any how. It pictures the Oceans 12 cast visiting Incirlik Air Base. Many people can visit the city.Seyhan668 (talk) 18:29, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Name Arzawa cleared[edit]

Last year (14 September 09 to be exact), I had remarked that the section chronology had a flaw. As far as I know, Adana was never a part of Arzawa. (Arzawa was much further in the west and Adana was probably a part of Kizzuwatna). I waited for a reply and then I discovered that the contributer had been blocked indefinitely. Today I cleared out the name Arzawa. But still if somebody has a source about Arzawa dominance over Adana, please revert my edit, citing the source. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 08:06, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Wrong information about climate.[edit]

Adana has a typical Mediterranean climate. Winters are mild and wet and summers are hot and dry. Totally wrong. Summers are very humid. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.7.112.78 (talk) 13:39, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Greeks Expelled from Adana 1922[edit]

Maraki21 (talk) 16:27, 17 October 2012 (UTC)This article makes no mention about the Greeks expelled from Adana in 1922. §

Greek populations[edit]

Muslim population of Adana was almost only Turkish during 14th-19th century[edit]

The Ottomans did not make differences between Muslim ethnicities in their census, but in this case in Adana the greatest possiblity is that the Muslims were Turks. The Arabs from Adana are allmost all Nusayris who came from Syria, Latakia region in the 19th century they settled in the southern plain of Adana where they became gardeners. The Kurds of Adana are almost all immigrants since the beginning of 1900, before this there was a very small Kurdish presence, mostly individuals. The Muslims of the entire Cilicia region and city of Adana were almost all Turkish speaking till the migration of Nusayris and Kurds in the 19th century.

So the source I added already explained this and so we can not change the source to include Arabs and Kurds in the city population, the facts show that they are recent immigrants.

Adana was in the early Middle Ages part of the Abbasid caliphate, Muslims were living in the city, they were probably Arabic speaking. However in the 10th century Adana and entire Cilicia region was captured by the Byzantines and Crusaders, the entire Muslim population died, converted or were expelled, no Muslims remained. Later Adana was captured by the Mamluks and Turkmens from the Armenians in the 14th century. But by then the Muslim population of Adana and its surrounding Taurus mountains and plains were almost all Turkish speaking nomads. A Turkish beylik Ramazanids was formed. Till the 19th century Turkish nomads ruled this area and migrated in the summer to the mountains and in the winter to the plain. However they were forcibly settled by the Ottoman government after 1860. There is no historical record for Arab tribes or people in this region.

The Ottoman registers show the names of the tribes, almost all are Turkic, medieval travelers who went to this region mentioned the Turkish nomads, Arabs are mentioned far further, in areas close to Aleppo not in Adana. Almost all geographical toponyms of the province of Adana and Cilicia are in Turkish. Even the Armenians who lived together with the Turks were so influenced they did not knew Armenian and talked Turkish as their mother language till the 20th century.

The Ottomans did record the names of the neighbourhoods and tribes they are almost all Turkic, which confirms the Turkish identity.

History subheadings[edit]

I noticed there are two separate history sections for this article. I don't really have the time myself to go through and figure out what has been duplicated and what hasn't, but hoepfully this will catch someone's attention who does have the time. Blackbird_4 08:03, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Intelligence and honesty of inhabitant![edit]

I am surprised that this sentence has not been deleted: "People of Adana, Adanalı, are well known with their bravery, honesty and generosity, but less known with their fluid intelligence that is not much bounded by structures of thought or belief systems. In a clear state of mind, this type of intelligence opens immense creativity and productivity; without clarity swings person from great production to great destruction". This is verbose, unencyclopaedic and quite unverifiable.Royalcourtier (talk) 07:40, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
