Weekly Photo Challenge – monument

Mount Nemrut, Turkey
Dating from 62BC the tomb sanctuary on the summit of the 2000+ metre Mount Nemrut in the SE of Turkey pays homage to King Antiochus, his ancestors, his gods and the symbols of the wealth and power of his Imperial cult. The layout of the site, with terraces facing both the rising and setting suns combined with both the astronomical and religious nature of the monolithic sandstone sculptures suggest the site was not only a burial site but was used for religious ceremonies.

About ladyredspecs

I live in sunny Brisbane, Australia. My love of good food drives me as a cook, a reader, a traveller, an artist and but mostly as an eater. I cooked professionally for many years but have no formal training. Simply guided by a love of eating good food, respect for ingredients and an abhorrence of artificial additives, I cook instinctively applying the technical know how acquired by experience. I hope you enjoy what I share Sandra AKA ladyredspecs
