Lycian Rock Tombs, Dalyan

4.7
See Lycian Rock Tombs, one of the ancient architectural wonders of Turkey, carved into the cliffs facing the town of Dalyan. Built around the year 400 BCE, their temple-like facade indicates that the tombs were built for kings and queens. Due to safety concerns, and in order to protect the tombs from being damaged, visitors are not allowed to go up the cliff. You can, however, take a closer look by catching a boat across the river and then going for a stroll along the path at its base.

  • Dalyan you can watch their graves sit from the heart of the King. Beautifully situated beside the river and a tea garden if you have two pounds in his pocket watch scene there ... you can't go in with the negative of the work as well as tombs, forbidden. But the nature of our people's ability to understand this ban considering destroying. I think it's worth a visit.

  • If you are staying in the area near does not necessarily suggest to go. Inside the tombs, was closed down for a ride, but nowhere near the pass, hear the story very interesting. One of the largest tombs belong to the city's King, the small next to the King's slave. They were invading the second time after death, according to the world or I in the service of Kings are slaves when they suffered next to the tomb of the King buried in other graves, already buried in the grave with all the assets in the King.

Where to stay in Dalyan

The village of Dalyan is abundant in its family-run hostels and guesthouses. This quiet, riverside town offers older, quaint places to stay right along the river. Here, water taxis will pick you up right at your front door and whisk you off to nearby tourist attractions. You'll find newer hotels and guesthouses more inland, but still a short walk to the pier. If you're not willing to forgo luxury, look to the more upscale, coastal resorts just south of the village, which come with a ten-minute commute.
