Hierapolis Ancient Tombs

Photo of the Week: This is a wealthy merchant’s tomb in the city’s necropolis, an ancient cemetery with elaborate tomb monuments.

I took a peek inside this tomb. No scary bones or skeletons. Nothing except dust. I was disappointed.

I guess whatever remains here was stolen when the Persians and the Turks invaded. This is one of the many beautiful ancient structures that still remain intact.
