Gobeklitepe, The World's First Temple
Göbekli Tepe is one of the most fascinating Neolithic sites in the world. It is a tell, an artificial mound dating to the Pre-Pottery Neolithic. It was not used for habitation; it consists of several sanctuaries in the form of round megalithic enclosures. Even today, the place has lost nothing of its magic appeal. A wishing tree which stands on top of the ridge is still sought out by the residents of the surrounding area for instance. Archaeologists found an important piece of the puzzle in the early history of humanity at the site, which contributes to a completely new understanding of the process of sedentism and the beginning of agriculture. The hill, which is strewn with countless stone implements and large-format, regular-shaped ashlars, revealed its secret as a result of the excavations by the German Archaeological Institute in cooperation with the Archaeological Museum in Sanlıurfa. Today’s ancient archaeological tour is fully dedicated to solving the mystery of Göbekli Tepe.
