Statue Heads of Mount Nemrut

Statue Heads of Mount Nemrut

I haven’t been here, but Yuksel says the statue heads of Mount Nemrut should appear on every history list about Turkey. The giant statue heads feature on most holiday postcards of the country. The UNESCO World Heritage site, suspected to date from the 1st century BC, was built in honour of Greek, Armenian, and Persian gods but at some point, the heads fell from the main body structure.
Due to the height of Mount Nemrut, yearly snowfall is guaranteed and this is slowly wearing down the stone structures. The best time to visit is at sunset or sunrise when the orange glow projects a dramatic scene to the bodiless statue heads.
