It's a 60-million-year-old geological wonder on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Volcanic lava and ash accumulated on the plateau formed a soft layer of tuff. The basalt cracked and fell to pieces. The rains began to seep through the cracks and erode the soft tuff. Warming and cooling air and winds also participated in the formation. Thus, cones with hats were formed from hard basalt rock. The people gave these different and interesting shaped rocks a name: "Fairy chimney"

Hierapolis Ancient Site
The archaeological site was added as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988.
Hierapolis was originally a Phrygian cult centre of the Anatolian mother goddess of Cybele and later a Greek city. Its location was centred upon the remarkable and copious hot springs in classical Phrygia in southwestern Anatolia. Its extensive remains are adjacent to modern Pamukkale in Turkey.
The hot springs have been used as a spa since at least the 2nd century BC. Many patrons retired or died there as evidenced by the large necropolis filled with tombs. The most famous is Marcus Aurelius Ammianos, which bears a relief depicting the earliest known example of a crank and rod mechanism. And the Tomb of Philip the Apostle.
Travertine of Pamukkale
Pamukkale sinter terraces were added as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988.
Pamukkale, meaning "cotton castle" in Turkish, is a natural site in Denizli Province in southwestern Turkey. The area is famous for a carbonate mineral left by the flowing of thermal spring water.
This area has been drawing visitors to its thermal springs since the time of classical antiquity. The Turkish name refers to the surface of the shimmering, snow-white limestone, shaped over millennia by calcite-rich springs. Dripping slowly down the mountainside, mineral-rich waters collect in and cascade down the mineral terraces, into pools below.
Aspendos Roman Theatre, added in 2015 to the UNESCO World Heritage List, is a beautifully preserved Ancient Roman site in Turkey. In fact, it seems to be almost completely intact.
Once called Belkis, Aspendos was founded by the Hittites. Aspendos was a thriving ancient city and important to the politics of the Pamphylian region. In 333 B.C. Alexander the Great conquered the city. The stunning theater was then constructed by the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius (161-180 AD) who ordered its great theater to be built. Still used for performances today, the theater really allows you to imagine what it was like to attend a dramatic performance in Roman times. The ruined city of Aspendos includes a substantial aqueduct, agora, basilica, and stadium.
