Lion Gate in Hattusas
If the name of "City of a Thousand Gods" really arouses your interest then Hattusas (Hattusa or Hattush) is the place to be. Located in one of the most rugged territories in the central Anatolian region Hattusas used to be the political and the religious capital of the Hittite Empire. Having the modern-day village of Bogazkale (formerly known as Bogazköy) as its immediate neighbor Hattusas has the Kizil Irmak River running through it.
It is amazing to see how Turkey holds the key to so many civilizations. Much is known about the other places but Hattusas is a place that defies all known boundaries of comprehension for much is left to be unearthed here.
