Pamukkale literally means “cotton castle.” It was the location of the ancient city of Hierapolis, but what draws visitors to this world heritage site are the massive travertine terrace formations that are viewable with this natural wonder.
What helped to form this structure are the hot springs in the area that contain high levels of calcium carbonate. The spring brings the water forth at the top of the terraces, which causes the calcium carbonate to form into a soft gel that will eventually crystalize to create the terraced effect that is seen.
Access to the terraces is not allowed, but pathways do lead visitors throughout the site. You can also dip your feet into certain small pools with footwear removed.
At Pamukkale, you’ll find a museum that contains numerous artifacts from the surrounding ancient cities. Colossae, Tripolis, Heirapolis, Laodiceia, and Attuda are all represented within the exhibits. Bronze Age craftwork is also displayed within a large section of the museum. Some exhibitions also include artifacts found outside the Lycos Valley.
During your stay, be sure to tour the ruins of Hierapolis, which was an ancient Roman Spa built in the 2nd century BC. The theater is preserved quite well and the necropolis has sarcophagi that stretch out for nearly 2 kilometers. The antique pool has submerged Roman columns that are quite impressive.
Pamukkale is a place of beauty. Its designation as a heritage site is well-deserved. It is a destination that everyone deserves to experience at least once in their lives.
