  • Neolithic 9400 years Unesco World Heritage site, is a great site/Amazing excavation site from 9400 years ago, also taking place on the UWH list.

  • Thousands of years of history touching to see structures that are really exciting. Construction for a long time remain well preserved beneath the ground. Staff at the Museum are helping about trips and narration. Improvement of the main entrance to the Museum and become a more modern converted will be useful, I think.

  • UNESCO CULTURAL HERITAGE SITES. ARCHEOLOGICAL WONDER OR DON'T GO AT ALL. The Konya Archaeological Museum where the Buluntularının visit. Konya Kate main road directly have been closed due to the construction of the road leading to the Municipality the Karatay. When using other ways hardly orjon welcoming you to doing everything so don't go in there (slippers circulating). I think the small number refuses to give guidance to visitors. Water channel is situated on the road from there the routing sign Cumra. If you come from the other direction, or you might miss the entry or briefly. Excavation finds from the Konya archaeological museum. Some of these have been exposed, while others have been preserved in the repository. If you do not have worry about ever archaeological excavation area. The earliest settlement is dated to 5500 Bc (1). Style critique via this dating, C 14 with verified.

  • Interesting UNESCO site you can access free of charge. There is a nice compilation of neolithic houses built for demonstration. Easy to kearn the whole history of excavations and what was found. Worth coming if you are in Konya or around.
  • The problem with neolithic is that it's fragile and so must be protected. This means covered with a roof and, if necessary, with sandbags to keep walls from collapsing. When I visited much of the place was covered with sandbags and there was relatively little to see. The little museum is nice and informative though most objects found here at çatalhöyük are kept elsewhere.
  • Living here is such a drag in some ways. Having to repaint my walls every year is real chore, but we can get away from the smoke on the sweet roof deck, where I try to spend most of my time. My neighbors and I walk roof-to-roof sometimes, we don’t even have to go down to the ground. I love working the fields here, too - they’re well irrigated and we hope to stay here a long time. 4 stars because, really, it's smokey indoors and some of my fields are a day's walk away.
  • Most Konyan hotel and tourism staff will tell you to give this site a miss, which is a shame because it's a true archaeological marvel that befits its UNESCO designation. Ongoing excavations have peeled back 9000 years of civilization that have been preserved in situ. Turkish schools send field trips here, and with the well-written English displays and model hits, I highly recommend it for junior archaeologists.
  • Everybody must see this place. Amazing!
