Mount Nemrut - Home To Gods Beheaded

The Adiyaman Province of Turkey in the south east of the country is not wealthy - it is still classified as a developing rural region. Yet 25 miles from the small town of Kâhta the visitor discovers the remnants of once fabulous wealth. High on the summit of Mount Nemrut is a huge but little visited necropolis, home to the beheaded gods of the past.
