Another place to go check out the next time I’m in Turkey. Along with Göbekli Tepi and Çatalhöyük. There’s a lot of fascinating stuff there, but sadly, a lot of tourists never venture out of Istanbul.
Troy is awesome.
So that’s how the Muslims got up here. Someone left the gate open.
There are at least two other locations in the Middle East that are purported to be the entrance (or exit) to Hades, or “the Abyss”. One is in the caverns of Caesarea Philippi in northern Israel at Banias, and the other is on Temple Mount in Jerusalem. According to legend, when the builders of the first Temple tried to remove the rock that seals the entrance, the shrieking of the damned was heard, and the stone was quickly replaced. This place is now located under the Dome of the Rock.
Might be a good place to look for comrade obama’s BC.
I like Hierapolis. It’s got great ruins and isn’t far from Laodicea.
So, not one of my ex-wives. Great.
