Welcome to Pamukkale Pamukkale has been made eternally famous by the gleaming white calcite travertines (terraces) overrunning with warm, mineral-rich waters on the mountain above the village – the so-called ‘Cotton Castle' (pamuk means 'cotton' in Turkish). Just above the travertines lies Hierapolis, once a Roman and Byzantine spa city, which has considerable ruins and a museum. #visitturkey #exploreturkey #goodmantours #hierapolis #whattodointurkey #dailyturkeytours #turkeytours #pamukkale #pamukkaletravertines

#Pamukkale sits in the valley of the River Menderes. It was actually the shifting of a fault in this valley that caused the hot springs to rise. The subduction of the tectonic plates took place around 400,000 years ago, and the travertine terraces have been forming ever since. Seventeen calcium-rich thermal springs cascade over the hillside, and the water leaves deposits of carbonate minerals that form the travertine terraces. Travertine is a type of limestone that arises through the rapid precipitation of mineral deposits. The travertine terraces of Pamukkale are pure white, and as such, look almost like they are made from snow and ice at a distance. A city was founded at the top of the hill at the beginning of the 2nd century BC, and the thermal springs became renowned for their healing properties. Numerous temples were constructed, and because of these, the city became known as #Hierapolis, which translates to ‘holy city’. Severe earthquakes destroyed the city in 133 BC, and again in 60 AD. Following the latter, Hierapolis was rebuilt by the Romans. Another earthquake in the early 7th century caused significant damage but the city was only abandoned for good after the earthquake of 1354. What remains is predominantly the ruins of the Roman city. #pamukkaletours #dailypamukkale #visitturkey #exploreturkey #opostravel #hierapolis #heirapolistours #whattodointurkey #dailyturkeytours #turkeytours
