Derinkuyu Yeralti Sehri, Derinkuyu

Cave Ruin Must See
Go on a journey below the surface of the Earth at Derinkuyu Yeralti Sehri, a place that once housed up to 20,000 people. This elaborate subterranean complex dates back to about the 7th century BCE and has been used as a refuge from raiders and invaders even in modern times. It descends eight floors and includes a church and a school, together with living quarters, stables, storage rooms, and manufacturing facilities. You can also see the ingenious air and water supply systems. The chambers and passageways are well-lit, but often narrow and with low ceilings, so anyone suffering from claustrophobia might experience discomfort.

If there's no telling, you can't make sense of anything you're looking at. However, how many meters below the ground, this effort, effort and order are enough to arouse admiration. Unfortunately, just because it's 'unique' deserves more than 42 tl, the lack of hc guidance service makes the person who comes to see with excitement upsets and amazes.
