Göbekli Tepe, the site of the world’s oldest temple, is also known as the first humanities cathedral on a hill. It stands as the most important representative of a belief system, dating to the early days of the Neolithic Period over 11,00 years ago.
Göbekli Tepe has cultural, religious and historical significance. Through the discovery of Göbekli Tepe archaeologists have uncovered a well-preserved site that highlights that the coordinated effort to build religious monoliths ultimately led to the development of complex and settled societies. This discovery shows us that society and agriculture did not come before religion as was believed by many, but that religion and sites like Göbekli Tepe allowed complex societies to develop.
The Göbekli Tepe excavation area is over 90,000 square meters (larger than 12 football fields) and the current excavation site viewed by visitors is over 15 metres in depth.From Istanbul, daily private tours are available to Göbekli Tepe. Göbekli Tepe, the nomadic people’s spiritual centre is 1.5 km away from the nearest village, Örencik, and 18 km from the nearest city, Urfa, in South-eastern Turkey.
Mount Nemrut (2150 metres above sea level) is one of Turkey’s most spectacular sites and is a part of Turkey Package tours. Located in the Kahta district between Adiyaman and Malatya, near the Ankar Mountains (Anti Taurus). This site is a visual feast, constructed in 62 BCE by King Antiochus I as a monument to his rule, atop the highest mountain in the region and part of the Kingdom of Commagene. Often referred to as the ‘Throne of Gods’ it is one of the most ambitious sites completed during the Hellenistic period. Today, the sculptural heads sitting atop the mountain, preserved statues and, the beautiful location chosen for a tomb like sanctuary for the king, amazes visitors.
