YAZILIKAYA (HATTUŞA)

Three km from the Hittite capital at Hattuşa lies a double gully whose walls are covered with carvings of some of the thousand gods that made up the Hittite pantheon. It’s the images that attract attention, although there are also scant remains of a temple dating back to the 13th century B.C.

The Hittites are thought to have come here to celebrate their new year at the start of spring, but the discovery of some cremated remains strongly suggests that some of the Hittite monarchs may also have been buried here.

Yazılılkaya forms part of one of Turkey's world heritage sites along with Hattuşa.
