ANCIENT ROCK-CUT TOMBS OF MYRA’S LYCIAN NECROPOLIS: #7

IMG_1537

We are told to rise early so we can have room to appreciate this great view of Lycian rock tombs that are well over 2,000 years old residing in the ancient town of Myra in the Lycia region of Anatolia. The fronts of these tombs have been cut from the cliffs towering above the towns.  What a humbling sight, one only to stand in awe. I would like to write more about being humbled and standing in awe, but it is your turn to see secondhand from the photos.
