This Temple Still Astounds Archaeologists 12,000 Years Later
When it comes to the history of engineering, Gobeklitepe is one of the oldest miracles of humankind with its construction dating back to 12,000 years ago. Even now, archeologists are still trying to solve the mystery behind who designed, built and erected Gobeklitepe in a world of chaos, as well as how and why they did it.
Located about 15 km away from the city of Sanliurfa in Southeastern Turkey, Gobeklitepe is a pre-historic site, constructed in 10,000 BC. The site consists of groups of circular and oval-shaped structures located on the top of a hill. The findings show that Gobeklitepe is from the Pre-Pottery Neolithic A Period, which also credits the site as the oldest temple in the world.
