» Day 7 - Adiyaman - Nemrut - Diyarbakir (B, L, D)

We leave very early in the morning for Nemrut where King Anthiochus I of Commagene built a colossal funerary sanctuary of 16 giant statutes, each 10m in height, a temple dedicated to himself, to the Greco-Persian gods and to his Persian ancestors. The East & West terraces have a central courtyard surrounded with colossal statutes of lions, eagles, etc. The colossal statutes of seated figures are Apollo, Hermes, Zeus and Hercules. Getting a view of sunrise from the top of Mt. Nemrut is an incomparable experience. The panorama that dominates the West to the East allows us to understand why Anthiochus chose this spot to secure his place in the chronicles of history. We continue on to Diyarbakir where we will dine and spend the night.
