Gavurkale and Kulhoyuk 3.0 rating


Gavurkale and Kulhoyuk are known for their archaeological finds of Hittite ruins and artifacts which throw light on the culture and lives of people who lived in Anatolia from 1700 – 1200 BC.

Gavurkale is believed to have been a religious or royal funerary Hittite institution, with reliefs of 3 deities carved on a steeply sloping rock face on the southern side of a hill above the narrow valley of Babayakup river. The 2 male deities wear skirts, swords, hats with horns and crackows, while the seated female deity wears a robe and similar hat.

Excavations in Kulhoyuk near the tumulus have unearthed terracotta objects, a bull, a cylinder seal of Mitanni Culture and a Hittite stone stamp seal, bronze needles and knives from the Early Bronze Age, as well as agricultural tools.
