Hattuşaş - Relief in Chamber 2
Hattuşaş - Relief in Chamber 2
Hattuşaş was the capital of the Hittite empire from 2000 to 1180 BC. In the eastern part of the Upper City two monumental domed chambers could be partially restored from large limestone blocks. Chamber 1 was not decorated, but Chamber 2 was adorned with reliefs that have survived in excellent condition thanks to the blanket of earth under which they lay protected over the millennia.

On the back wall of Chamber 2 stands a sun-god in a long cloak and slippers curling up at the toe. Identified by the double winged sun positioned over his head, he holds a curved rod in his left hand, and in his right-as befits a giver of life-a somewhat modified version of the Egyptian emblem of life.
