Tour Summary

Visit Göbekli Tepe and feel the pulse of time…

Here at Göbekli Tepe lie the remains of the earliest religious structures built by man yet to be discovered.

 

At about 11000-13000 years old this site pre-dates both pottery and writing and is far older that either Stonehenge in England or the great Egyptian Pyramids. In fact, less time separates us from the builders of Stonehenge than separates the builders of Stonehenge from the last known use of Göbekli Tepe.

 

Göbekli Tepe may have been in use as a point of gathering for religious and ritual events for over 2000 years and it represents a major advance in our understanding of man’s early history.
