Central Anatolia Region of Turkey




cappadocia

The central Anatolian plateau, ochre-hued, cleft by ravines and dominated by volcanic peaks, forms the heart of Turkey. Covered with wheat fields and outlined with ranks of poplars the boldly contoured steppe has a solitary majesty. This plateau was one of the cradles of human civilisation. At Catalhoyuk remains of settlements from as early as the eighth millennium B.C. have been unearthed. The homeland of many people and the historic battleground of East and West, here the Hattis, Hittites, Phrygians, Galatians, Romans, Byzantines, Seljuks and Ottomans all fought for their sovereignty and established their rule.

In the 11th century the migrating Turks from the east made the plateau their own. During its turbulent history Central Anatolia has endured invasion by great conquerors such as Alexander the Great and Tamerlane. In the course of ten millennia of habitation the denizens of the area have reflected in their art from the vigorous paintings of Catalhoyuk to the confident lines of Seljuk architecture.
