Description
Monumental statues on Nemrut Dağı.
Nemrut or Nemrud (Nemrut Dağı) is a 2,134 m (7,001 ft) high mountain in southeastern Turkey, notable for the summit where a number of large statues is erected around what is assumed to be a royal tomb from the 1st century BCE.
In 62 BC, King Antiochus I Theos of Commagene built on the mountain top a tomb-sanctuary flanked by huge statues (8–9 m/26–30 ft high) of himself, two lions, two eagles and various Greek, Armenian, and Iranian gods, such as Hercules-Vahagn, Zeus-Aramazd or Oromasdes (associated with the Iranic god Ahura Mazda), Tyche, and Apollo-Mithras. The heads of the statues have at some stage been removed from their bodies, and they are now scattered throughout the site.
In 1987, Mount Nemrut was made a World heritage site by UNESCO.
