In the mountainous southeastern region of Turkey, one peak stands out above the rest. Nemrut Dağı, or Mount Nemrut, ascends over 7,000 feet (2,130 meters) into the sky, and at its peak explorers will find the scattered stone heads of what are thought to be ancient gods.

After the fall of the Seleucid Empire in 190 BCE, a host of successors emerged throughout the region surrounding the Taurus mountains. One such successor state, Commagene, ruled over many diverse cultures and religions. Their leader, Antiochus I, brought these beliefs together into a single imperial cult. The monuments at the top of Mount Nemrut depict the various gods in a blend of regional artistic styles and are thought to have adorned the still-undiscovered tomb of Antiochus I.

  • tevfik_fikret_@bulent1969 ulan hıyar! İyi kötü ingilizcemiz var. Bu dağın ne kürtle ne ermenilerle alakası yok. Sığır. Biraz ölçülü at. Nefret ediyorum sizin gibi beyinden değilde götünden konuşanlara. Yeter artık lan! Buraların tarihi bir kronolojik sırası var. Ve bu sıralamalarda bu topraklarda asla kürtler yoktur. Kürtler sonradan yerleşmişlerdir Ermeniler de dahil. siz anlamazsınız fakat götten sıkmadan gayet iyi anlarsınız.
