Sonnenuntergang auf Mount Nemrut Dağı

Sunset on the 2150 meter high mountain Nemrut Dağı, which lies in the southeast of Turkey.
On its peak, King Antiochos I (69-36 B.C.) erected a sanctuary and probably his own tomb.
The alleged tomb consists of a gravel pile from fist large stones with a height of 45 meters and 150 meters of diameter over the natural peak of the mountain.
However, archaeologists have not yet succeeded in finding either an entrance or a burial chamber.
