Çeng is a Turkish harp. It was a popular Ottoman instrument until the last quarter of the 17th century. The word comes from the Persian word "chang" which means "harp".

The ancestor of the Ottoman harp is thought to be an instrument seen in ancient Assyrian tablets. While a similar instrument also appears in Egyptian drawings.
