If you can only go to one place in Ankara, I suggest you go to the Anatolian Museum of Civilization History with both hands and feet. Apart from a few purchased collections, the unearthed cultural relics in this museum have a definite age. Its span extends from Paleolithic to Roman times, and the museum itself is a cultural relic, transformed from hotels inhabited by ancient caravans. Here is a complete record of Turkey's complex history, the collection is top-level cultural relics, like the museum's friends must not miss.
The Anatolian Museum of Civilization, also known as the Hitti Museum, is located on the southwest side of the ancient castle of Ankara, Turkey's capital. Its exhibits are mainly Herthic cultural relics and prehistoric stone and bronze. The exhibits of the Anatolian Museum of Civilization are chronologically arranged into 10 different periods, from Paleolithic to Roman. As early as 500,000 years ago, human beings lived on this land. A variety of stone tools and murals, axes, scrapers, arrows, needles and so on, made of stone or bone, have been unearthed from the Karain cave on the edge of the Saying Mountains in Northwest Antalya. In addition, cultural relics of the Neolithic and Bronze Ages unearthed from various parts of Turkey are also exhibited. At that time, human beings had learned to build houses and cultivate, and began to make altars and pots. Monochrome pottery produced at that time and stamps pressed with moulds are displayed in the museum. Anatolia was also one of the first places where people made pottery. The Central Hall of the museum displays large and precious stone sculptures, mostly from the city of Kavenkamis in southeastern Turkey, which has a history of more than 2,500 years. The patterns and shapes of these stone carvings are very similar to those of ancient Egypt. The Hittites belong to Indo-European race, and their culture is mostly influenced by Babylon and Egypt. Hittite was once the most powerful country in Western Asia, and Babylon destroyed it. But at the end of the 13th century B.C., the Hittite Kingdom split, declined in the 8th century B.C., and was later destroyed by the Assyrian Empire and incorporated into the Assyrian territory. The museum exhibits the most abundant cultural relics of the Heti period, including stone tablets with Heti cuneiform inscriptions.
Hundreds of kilometers to Ankara just for the museum. Enter the library for an hour and a half. They stopped in front of the Hittite exhibition area for an hour. Everything in it is the treasure of my mind for sixteen years. I did not expect that one day, I could really stand on this land, looking at the Anatolia Plateau in the morning, eating breakfast. Clay boards can also be bought. Really dead without regret.
It's not big, but it's very rich. The clues are clear. The rule of several dynasties, such as Alexander the Great and Caesar the Great, allowed ancient Greece and Rome to collide here, and gave birth to a brilliant Anatolian civilization. After reading it, I can have a clear understanding of the whole history of Anatolia's civilization, and come to Ankara to recommend it.
The Anatolian Museum of Civilization in Ankara is one of the most worthwhile museums in Ankara. The Antatolian civilization displayed here is a mystery for thousands of years. Through archaeological discoveries, many historical relics of this civilization, including exquisite rock murals, distinctive tombs and unearthed primitive jewelry, are very precious. They are important places to understand this civilization and are definitely worth visiting.
This is the famous museum, which was rebuilt by the 15th century caravan hotel. The museum exhibits cultural relics from Paleolithic to Roman times. Except for a few purchases, most of the exhibits have clear land and layers. From a small circle of the exhibition hall, we can basically grasp the ancient Anatolian culture. The production is very exquisite, the archaeological value is very high, the key is to take pictures.. I accidentally omitted my credit card in the museum. When I was ready to leave after visiting, they found me to return the card to me. Thank you so much.
Personally, I like visiting museums very much. Although this museum is small, it collects many Heritage and Greek and Roman relics, and it is an ancient building itself. It is said that it was a post station hundreds of years ago. There is a very high pot inside, which sculpts a lot of people's life at that time and even individual sexual intercourse. History proves that the Heritage is the first place in the world. The people who know how to smelt iron, the invention of iron later benefited all mankind, we want to thank it.
Although many items have a long history and turn around, we can see that they are still more exquisite. As a symbol of the traditional contractual state in the West, the museum has the oldest marriage certificate and divorce certificate in the world, as well as some very beautiful seals. In addition to more Heritage cultural objects, we can also see some statues of other periods.
Turkey's Roman temples, Byzantine churches and Ottoman mosques often stand side by side. Countless castles, palaces and cultural heritage have witnessed the rise and fall of the Great Empire for thousands of years. Religion and culture have been confluent and turbulent several times, which even affected the appearance of Western and Islamic civilizations in history.
