Turkey: Nemrut Dağ

Last Monday I got my first two postcards from Turkish Kurdistan.

One card shows Nemrut Dağ. Nemrut Dağ is a mountain in the Adıyaman Province. It is known for the mausoleum of Antiochus I, who reigned over Commagene, a kingdom founded after the breakup of Alexander's empire. The mausoleum is considered to be one of the most ambitious constructions of the Hellenistic period. Nemrut Dağ is since 1987 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.


Stamps:
100 years Altay Sports Club (from set of four) (issued 16-01-2014)
Cuisine of the Mediterranean Region (two from set of four) (issued 29-09-2017)


Thank You very much Helen!
