Mount Nemrut Dağ

Sunset on the Mountain of the Gods

Sunset on the 2150 meters high mountain Nemrut Dağ, which lies in the southeast of Turkey.

On its summit, King Antiochos I (69-36 B.C.) erected a sanctuary and probably his own tomb. The alleged tomb consists of a pile of fist large stones with a height of 45 meters and 150 meters in diameter over the natural summit of the mountain.
However, archaeologists have not yet succeeded in finding either an entrance or a burial chamber.
