Also known as cotton castle for its white travertine terraces due to the calcium carbonate formations, Pamukkale has been Turkey’s most photographed sight. The Bollywood movie “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani” has been shot in the district’s white travertine. The terraces are over 300 feet in height and layers of the accumulated limestone sediment have been gradually formed in the course of the ages. For thousands of years a deep underground spring on the hills above has poured out streams of hot, mineral-saturated water. As the water has flowed down the mountainside, the water’s rich mineral content has coated them in a smooth layer of white calcareous rock. Several Roman emperors came to bathe in these thermal pools. The area is one of the leading hot springs in Turkey and it is believed that Cleopatra used to bathe in the bathing pool. Even today you find tourists who wish to bathe in the remains of this sacred pool which is associated with the Temple of Apollo.
