Osmaniye is a small town (974 square kilometers) in Southeastern part of Turkey, just north of the Gulf of Iskenderun of the Mediterranean Sea.
Osmaniye has a mild Mediterranean climate and is surrounded by fertile agricultural fields and forests where carpentry and woodworking once dominated the economy.
The Hittite fortress of Karatepe-Aslantas (used to be in the province of Adana, now Osmaniye's Kadirli district) was founded in the 8th century B.C. by Azatiwatis, ruler of the plain of Adana as a frontier castle against the wild hordes lurking in the north.
Osmaniye is surrounded by forests and carpentry and woodworking once dominated the economy; today the town is a processing center for the region’s production of cotton, wheat, corn, soybeans, and pistachios.
Osmaniye is on the road to Gaziantep, the capital of Gaziantep province.
Osmaniye was settled by the Hittites around the 14th century bc, and archaeological remains from various times are found in the surrounding region.
