Kaimakle dungeon, the largest dungeon in Cappadocia, is a dungeon worth visiting. It's better to invite a tour guide to show you the history of the dungeon. In addition, the dungeon is like a maze. It's much better to have a tour guide. But if you plan to walk by yourself, you don't have to worry about it. There's a sign below, you can always walk out. In a word, this is a very worthwhile scenic spot to see.
Apart from the impressive stone pillar forest caves, there are also many underground cave cities in Cappadochia, Turkey. These underground cities, which existed 400 B.C., have orderly passages, ventilation holes, domestic water and drainage systems. In addition, there are caves with different functions, such as churches, classrooms, bedrooms, kitchens and warehouses. The huge underground city can accommodate 10,000 people living at the same time. Live. In Cappadochia, 37 underground cities have been opened to the outside world. Conservatively, it is estimated that at least more than 100 underground cities have not yet been excavated. The total size of these underground shelters may remain a mystery.
Cappadochia - Up to 36 underground cities have been discovered so far, of which Kaimakle is the largest. The first was the dungeon built by the Hittites, and then Christians fled the Roman massacre into the dungeon, and increased the size of the building. The whole dungeon was 40 meters deep, with a total of eight floors. It was said that it could accommodate 10,000 people at that time. Like the subterranean and narrow maze of urban and rural areas, there are many traces of past life and various living facilities are very complete, which shows the wisdom and wisdom of the ancients.
Without being there, I can't imagine how great this underground city is, how deep it is, how it feels. The geological conditions and historical environment of the volcanic eruption have made the underground city a refuge for Christians to escape the pursuit of the Roman army in history, thus expanding the scale of the underground city. What we have visited is only a part of it that has been amazing. It is very hard to pass through narrow caves. Even in the low temperature of the underground city, people sweat all over, and sincerely marvel at the great nature and the wisdom of the ancients.
The underground city of Kayimahler was built to avoid foreign enemies at that time. Apart from the rooms, kitchens, toilets, parties, graves and livestock, it was a well-planned and maze-like place. It was hard to imagine how people were living in hardship at that time.
The underground ancient city is more than ten stories deep from the ground, but now only two or three stories have been opened. I don't know whether to create a mysterious atmosphere or to protect the ancient city. The light inside is very dim. In some places, we have to turn on the lights of mobile phones to illuminate. The heat outside vanished from the moment I entered the old underground city. There was no summer heat in it. But while we were visiting, we were discussing whether it would be easy to get rheumatism if we lived in such a humid place. Underground ancient cities had opened doors with different functions, such as churches, schools, conference halls, cemeteries, isolation of patients, and ventilation holes that used to penetrate more than ten floors. Only when we came to this historic site with reasonable design and high difficulty in building, did we realize that it was only when Yu Gong moved mountains. It's a piece of cake.

Kapadochia, one of Turkey's 36 underground cities, was built to escape persecution by Arabs. There are eight floors here, and four floors are now open. It feels amazing when you walk in. You can raise horses, worship and live in it. There is more dust in the underground city and the air is not very good. Some narrow areas need to bend in and even jam a fat man. I'm sure there were no fats before.
