:unsure2: Creepy and yet awesome. I wonder how old the ruins are? **goes to Google**

The site was founded more than 2,000 years ago, and being the highest point in the region, was probably a "sacred mountain" for thousands of years prior. The heads of the statues were pulled down by angry Roman soldiers (most likely -- another story blames earthquakes). In the novel Something Coming, the head of Antiochus appears back on its throne and is used as a sign of the mountain's reawakening. The history of Nemrut as a symbol of unity between East and West is used in the plot about a modern-day peace movement -- and about a notorious, brilliant, possibly mad king (Antiochus Epiphanes, who engineers his rebirth. It's a mystery all of the way to the end, very entertaining, and the Amazon reviews praise it.

I wonder if this site is linked to the ruins of 'Gobekli Tepe' which is south of 'Nemrut Dag' about 60 miles and just east of a village called 'Orencik' about 1 1/2 miles. Perhaps Gobekli Tepe was a spiritual center for the inhabitants of the ancient civilization Nemrut Dag.
