New on 500px : Blue Terraces by Angshu by Angshu

Pamukkale is one of Turkey’s top attractions and a precious in the world with its cotton-look terraces. The underground water once gave life to the ancient city of Hierapolis now helps Pamukkale be one of the most important thermal centers of Turkey.

Shaped by the hand of nature and extant since the ancient times, Pamukkale is one of the world’s most outstanding legacies.

Located in the province of Denizli this natural wonder is comprised of terraces and travertine formed by hot springs and streams depositing carbonate minerals. Pamukkale has gained eminence for its waters believed to have curative powers and been used as a thermal bath since centuries. Noted for its extraordinary characteristics, the ancient site has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1988.

This picture was taken in the North end of Pamukkale entering from Hierapolis side. Nobody is allowed to get down to the travertine pools, but these people had a permit to film for a local TV station
