Region : Antalya Comments : Visit Termessos Ancient City which was build high on top of the Solymos Mountain and the picturesque Düden Waterfall.
The ruins of the city of Termessos are perched on a 1050 metre high plateau on the west face of the Güllük Mountain (Solymos) found in Mt.Güllük National Park on the northwest of Antalya. A wild and splendid landscape surrounds the monumental traces of this city.
Termessians (Pisidian people) lived in their impregnable fortress city and guarded their independence fiercely. Alexander the Great was fought off in 333 B.C. and the Romans accepted Termessos as an independent ally, not as a subject city in 70 B.C.
The wartefall is situated in the state park. It has been used as a settlement area dating back to 5th century BC. Ancient graves built near the waterfall, dating to 3rd century BC can be seens. Discharge of the river is 25 million m3 per year. It is 25 meters deep.
Let’s conquer the City which Alexander the Great could not conquer in his times because of its location.
