The Cappadocia area of Turkey harbors underground cities. From the surface, the land is rolling, betrays no evidence that a city breathes beneath the grasses. There is a great network of these underground cities the vast majority of which have not been explored by modern man.
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.
