Pinara Ancient Ruins Turkey

Sitting high on a mountain covered with pine and olive trees as well as wild flowers and herbs, has stunning views across the Xanthos valley. Because it is so remote and can only Pinara Tomb cut into the rocksbe reached by a twisting track road it has a tranquil and mystical atmosphere.Towering over it is a 2,000 ft high flat-topped mountain cone that Pinara got is name from (Pinara means round in Lycian). On the east face there are hundreds of burial tombs. One of the largest Lycian Cities it spreads out in three directions over long terraces. There is evidence in the shape of a carving that, it was some sort of phallic worship site as well as being a religious centre dedicated to Athena, Apollo and Aphrodite. It is also believed to have been the city in which the first beauty contest of the area was organised. There are several temples and tombs to be seen, most notably the temple devoted to Aphrodite with its heart shaped columns and the Kings Tomb featuring detailed reliefs. Two house type tombs and a well preserved amphitheatre with wonderful views of the ruins.
