Description
Smintheum: Temple of Apollo in the southwestern Troad.
The Apollon Smintheus Temple is on the Southwestern tip of the Biga Peninsula within the province of Çanakkale and located in the town of Gülpınar, previously known as Külahlı. In geological terms the region is a volcanic plateau. It is at a site called Bahçeleriçi at the foot of the valley starting Northeast; northwest of the town. As it is fed with an underground water source, this locality is rich in water and it is probable that by means of underground channels formed in ancient times water was transported to the temple site. The plentiful ness of water here is a symbol of Apollo culture because in the Hellenistic age when the temple was built, the god Apollo in oracles always felt a need for water. This must therefore be the reason for the temple being founded on this site.
