Termessos is one of
the ancient cities of Turkey. It lies 30 kilometres to the north-west of Antalya.The
ancient city was built on a step hillside clad with pine forest,which has
helped it reach the present day intact and well-preserved.The first ruins
visible are remnants of the city wall that can be seen on the road from Antalya
to Korkuteli.The ruins extend to the summit of Gulluk Mountain.The principal
structures are the agora,temples,theatre,cisterns,necropolis ,column lined
street,bouleuterion and the gymnasium.
A visit to this site
requires time and the stamina to walk uphill, because Termessos is built
completely mountainous area difficult to access.
Before going to Karain
cave ,we have lunch break.
Apart from its
attractive natural feautures,Karain Cave is also remarkable as one of the
oldest human settlements in Anatolia.Archaeological excavations conducted in
the cave have unearthed artefacts from Early ,Middle and Late Stone ages and
Chalcolithic and Bronze ages as well as traces of later eras.Continuous human
habitation has created an 11 metre-thick layer of cultures.Nevertheless
the cave is principally known as one of the most important settlements of the
early Stone Age and Mediterranean region. Some of the finds are on display in
the little Karain Museum and others in the Pre-History Section of Antalya
