Roman Castle and Tomb

The castle and tomb in Goreme, which is connected to the city center of Nevsehir, belong to the Roman period. These tombs, built on behalf of soldiers who died in wars, have actually reached this form as a matter of being believed to life after death. The tomb architecture of the Roman period has been shaped by cappadocia rocks in its present form thanks to the easy-to-carved processing. During this period, belief in life after death constitutes an important field of faith in daily life. During the Roman period, people were believed to be interrogated in the sky with an angel after their death and then bring down in the ground and retreated. With this belief, especially the died in the war were buried in this area. The fact that the Roman Castle and Tomb was closer to the sky with its high structure also formed the main splendor of philosophy. Carved rock tombs are made up of room-shaped sections. It is rarely possible to see a few tombs in the room where one tomb is located in general. In the tombs created on a separate platform, the items that one loves and jewelery are left with them. The rooms, which had only one entrance, were closed and tried to protect. The the outer surface of the rock tomb is flattened and created, while others make a temple effect thanks to triangular foreheads and columns. The Roman Castle, which has a conical structure, has a structure resembling fairy chimneys.
