Haran (also Harran) is located in southern Turkey 28 mi. [45 km.] south-southeast of Sanliurfa - about 56 mi. [90 km.] east of the Euphrates River. It is mentioned 11 times in the Old Testament [Hebrew Bible]. Abram settled here for a period of time on his way from Ur to the Land of Canaan (Genesis 11 and 12).
