The giant stone heads adorning the Temple of King Antiochus at the summit of the mighty Nemrut Mountain are one of the most widely known images of Turkey. The great temple and tomb located on the top of this 2150 m. high mountain were built by Antiochus I Epiphanes (64-38 BC). A living testament to a two millennia old vanity, the heads of the gods poised on the mountain-top are well worth a visit. Transportation conditions to the site have radically improved in the last couple of years.
