    Çok fazla yürümeniz gerekiyor. Önceden bu kadar yürümek gerekmiyordu. Mağaraların içini gezebiliyordunuz şuan önünde demir korkuluklar var sadece dışarıdan bakabilirsiniz. Titus tünelinin yanında yer alıyor. Tünele girmek isteyenler de girerken dikkat ediniz. İçeride su birikintileri ve kayalar var. Bazı yerlerde kayaların üzerine çıkmanız gerekiyor.

    Kaya mezarlarının bulunduğu yaklaşık iki bin yıllık bir yapı. Mezarların sütunlu, sütun başlıklı, gösterişli yapılışına bakılınca burada şehrin önemli kişilerinin gömüldüğü anlaşılıyor.
