Pamukkale - A Complex of Terraced Pools in South Turkey.


Even if we know that earthquakes are horrible and their consequences are always bad for humans, we have to admit that in this case, earthquakes brought us something useful. Here you can see amazing photos of beautiful terraced pools in Pamukkale, Turkey which were created as a consequence of earthquake.

Pamukkale got its name from Turkish words "pamuk" which means "cotton" and "kale" which means "castle". Probably they named this location "Cotton castle" because of intensive white color of its carbonate rocks.

This amazing natural site is located in Denizli Province, at the south-west of Turkey. This place is known amongst tourists for a very long time. There are some historical records which tells us that tourists were bathing in those natural pools even thousand years ago.
