Aphrodisias and Pamukkale

Aphrodisias is an ancient temple dedicated to Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Aphrodisias was the metropolis of the Roman province of Caria. Very well restored and preserved, the site lays out over a large area. A beautiful amphitheater was most probably used for celebrating the cult of the goddess. Among other structures, like a monumental gateway, Odeon, and the stadium, one of the exceptional landmark is Cleopatra's bath, which may inspire you to visit a cotton castle - Pamukkale. Here the unique terraces are made of travertine, a sedimentary rock deposited by water from the hot springs, featuring 17 hot water springs with the temperature ranges from 35 °C to 100 °C. Thermal waters are protected and the water supply to the nearby hotels is limited, preserving this natural phenomenon and allowing it to restore itself.
