The name Catalhoyuk means a forked mound and it indicates two prehistoric settlement mounds. Situated in southern Anatolia around 85 miles away from the volcano of Hasan Dag are the mounds within the fertile wheat fields of the Konya Plain. An ancient settlement amidst a mystifying land and ruins that narrate a tale of its own, a visit to Catalhoyuk is like stepping in and seeing the unfolding of the very evolution of man.

Catalhoyuk with its fascinating history and prehistory gives an opportunity to take a peek at the beginnings of times gone by. If you ever visit the central Anatolian region you should definitely not miss a chance to visit it.
