heart of old Asia Minor, 4,000 feet up on the Anatolian plain
at the crossroads of ancient trade routes, lies one of Earth’s
most haunting and surreal landscapes. Born of volcanoes and
fashioned by wind and winter rains, Cappadocia’s extraordinary
stalagmite pillars are known as “fairy chimneys”.
Once inhabited by Neolithic cavemen, the Cappadocian caves were
a safe haven for early Christians seeking refuge from invading
Arab armies. Of the region’s 500 underground cities, Kaymakli
is the most famous, with its labyrinth of interconnecting tunnels
and caves extending nine storeys and 170 feet below the surface.
