This is one of the largest preserved Ancient Cemeteries in Turkey. It is located outside the Northern walls of the city, and here you will see all types of Tombs & Funeral monuments dating from the Hellenistic era to early Christian times. On wandering around, I found lots of inscriptions. There is said to be 1200 tombs here, including Hellenistic tumili,(mound of earth over a grave) Roman Sarcophagi, Burial Chambers, and complete burial grounds from early Christian times. Interesting!
