Karain Caves

Location : 37.078805,30.570831

Karain are some of Turkey's largest natural caves, and are nearly 430-450 metres above sea level. The caves are of notable significance for Anatolian and Middle Eastern history, as evidence of human settlements dating back to the early Palaeolithic age (150,000-200,000 years ago) was discovered in these caves. Archaeological excavations continue within the caves.
