Hattuşaş - The Green Stone
Hattuşaş - The Green Stone
The historical site of Boğazköy /Hattuşaş (added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1986) is located at 82 km. to the southwest of Çorum and it is 208 km. from Ankara. Hattuşaş was the capital of the Hittite empire from 2000 to 1180 BC. Today, impressive double walls, which are situated by the King’s Gate,the Lion Gate and the Yer Kapi (an underground tunnel), circle its ruins. The largest ruins are those of the great temple of the storm god Tesup..

This green stone probably has played a role in some cult.
