Hittite gods march in a row at Yazýlýkaya

Yazýlýkaya was the official temple and sanctuary of the Hittite Empire. A shrine carved into a natural alcove of rocks lies about a mile and a half northeast of Hattusa. It´s being open to the sky and nature, it is thought that the rites were nature oriented.
There were two alcoves, one larger than the other, both somewhat separated form each other. Yazilikaya comprises two chambers or alcoves and a roofless sanctuary containing reliefs of gods and goddesses on parade. Goddesses appear in profile, wearing long robes; gods, most wearing kilts, face forward.
