Mount Nemrut

(Mt. Nemrut) is the first impressive peak rising from a flat plain in Northern Mesopotamia and stretches to a height of 2150 meters. It is matchless in its historical treasures. The original peak was removed and in its place was constructed the Tumulus of Antiochos I, one of the kings of Commagene (One of the four Armenian kingdoms) when it was at its height of power and art expression during the 1st century B.C. This interesting structure was made by heaping up pieces of rocks to make the 50 m x 150 m mound. The east and west terraces of this mound are open-air temples. On these terraces are statues of lions, eagles, five gigantic god statues, four male and one female.
