Hamah is famous for the huge wooden water wheels, known as norias, which once scooped water from the river and deposited it into the aqueducts, which then supplied homes, public buildings and farms. These wheels are about 20 meters in diameter and still turn today, although their water is not used.

Interesting not complementing a very good photo. The light management is excellent, making the composition that much more effective. The 20 m wooden wheels are immense, but what is the period of this machinery 18th century, 16th or earlier?
