    Hieropolis

    November 6, 2020 in Turkey ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    Near Laodikeia. This is known as a healing city as the natural hot water springs contain 17 minerals, I'm told. Probably the most famous feature is the travertine, hot water deposited calcium carbonate (see the 1st picture). The 2nd picture is taken from Laodikeia, 10 km across the valley, to given a sense of the extent of the travertine deposit. 3 looks at the natural hot pool. The columns under the water remain from an earthquake destroyed temple. 4 is a temple to Apollo (they think). 5 is the tomb and place of martyrdom of St. Phillip. The last looks down into the theater, giving a good sense of how these buildings actually were.Read more
