Pamukkale/Cappadocia Pictures

by shevaughnofsaskatchewan

Both Cappadocia and Pamukkale are stunning natural wonders for obvious reasons.

Pamukkale is made of limestone terraced cliffs with natural springs running down.

Cappadocia is a land made from the ash and lava of volcanoes that erupted some millions of years ago. After this, wind and rain eroded the soft parts to create what they call “fairy chimneys”.
In the 4th century, Christians began to carve cave cities out of the chimneys in order to hide from Arab raiders. These could hold up to 20,000 people with 100s of churches, houses, tunnels and up to a dozen levels.
