Haran, Charan, or Charran is a place mentioned in the Hebrew Bible. Haran is almost universally identified with Harran, an Assyrian name of the Hurrian city whose ruins lie within present-day Turkey. Haran first appears in the Book of Genesis as the home of Terah and the latter's descendants, and as Abraham's temporary home. Later biblical passages list Haran among some cities and lands subjugated by Assyrian rulers and among Tyre's trading partners.
