Hattuşaş - View on Great Fortress
Hattuşaş - View on Great Fortress
Hattuşaş was the capital of the Hittite empire from 2000 to 1180 BC.

The Büyükkale or the Great Fortress accommodated the royal couple and their residence is surrounded by a system of protective walls located on a crest. The palace also has public rooms, sacred areas, a huge reception hall and was the residence of the royal sentinel.
Büyükkale is indeed an ideal place to establish a royal residence. This plateau with a relatively flat surface about 250 x 140 m is naturally protected on every side by steep slopes or precipitous bluffs.
(Location: Boğazköy /Hattuşaş )
