Eflatunpınar Hittite Water Monument

"The territory of Turkey is an open-air museum in itself," historians say. The Anatolian lands, which are home to countless civilizations and their cultures, also come out with countless works to confirm this saying. It is a work of Hittites, one of the most well-known ancient civilizations of Anatolia, the Eflatunpınar Hittite Water Monument. Hittites attached great importance to water both in their importance in addressing their vital needs and their religious beliefs. That's why they usually made artifacts near the water. The Eflatunpınar Hittite Water Monument, one of the most beautiful works they make next to water, stands out as one of the rare works that have come almost intact to this day. The Eflatunpınar Hittite Water Monument, which dates back to the last quarter of the 13th century BC, it belongs to the period of The Great King Tuthalia IV. The structure, which is similar to an open-air temple alone with hand-embroidered reliefs and original stonework style, also retains its robustness as it is built on a natural rock. The monument, which features god and goddess models in hittite religion, is built on the edge of the pool created from the natural water source, so it also gives information about the water technology of that era. The Eflatunpınar Hittite Water Monument, which has increased more in every century with its prudence and beauty, brings together the greatness of Anatolian lands under one roof.
