Adana is the
capital of Adana Province in Turkey. According to the 2000
census, with 1,130,710 inhabitants, it is the fifth most
populous city of Turkey (after Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir and
Bursa). The 2006 estimate of Adana's population is 1,271,894.
For most Turkish people, the word 'Adana' associates with Kebab,
şalgam, cotton, oranges and very hot weather, in the awareness
that Adana also embodies more than just these.
