About Urfa

Since 1984, Urfa is officially renamed as '''Şanlıurfa''' (i.e. "Glorious Urfa"), which is how it is shown on maps and highway signs. Şanlıurfa is usually abbreviated to '''Ş.Urfa''' on non-official signs, such as those on buses or restaurants. However, colloquially and locally, the city is still almost always referred to Urfa.
