The Underground City at Derinkuyu


Frozen Memories

We visited the Derinkuyu underground city, a city with 8 levels. Imagine an inverted building where each of the 8 floors extends deeper into the earth, deeper into darkness, deeper into the scary recesses of my mind as feelings of claustrophobia gave me the sweats in the cool. The hall pictured here is one of the many great openings used for worship, used for schools, used for congregating, used to shelter animals.
