Synopsis >

Take a tour of Nemrut in Turkey € part of the World € s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats. Visitors to Mount Nemrut will be greeted by an odd and mysterious sight. Arrayed around the summit of the mountain are large stone statues of Greek and Persian gods. King Antiochus is believed to be buried here, although his tomb remains undiscovered. The statues have all had their heads removed, possibly the deliberate work of iconoclasts.
