History of Derinkuyu Underground City


Derinkuyu Underground City is an ancient multi-level subterranean city located in the Cappadocia region of Turkey. Here is a brief history of the city:

The city was likely first constructed during the Hittite era, which spanned from around 1600 BCE to 1200 BCE. It is believed that the Hittites began carving out the underground spaces as a means of protection from invasions and attacks.

Over the centuries, various peoples who inhabited the region continued to expand and improve the underground city. These included the Phrygians, Persians, Greeks, and Romans.

During the early Christian era, the underground city became a refuge for early Christian communities who were fleeing persecution. The city’s tunnels and chambers provided shelter and protection from their oppressors.

In the Middle Ages, the city was used by the Byzantine Empire as a hiding place from the Arab armies who were expanding into the region. The city was expanded and fortified with new walls and defensive structures.

In the 20th century, the city was rediscovered by a Turkish man who was renovating his home. As he dug beneath the surface, he discovered the ancient tunnels and eventually uncovered the entire underground city.

Today, Derinkuyu Underground City is a popular tourist attraction and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Visitors can explore the network of tunnels and rooms, which include living spaces, kitchens, wineries, stables, and even a chapel. The city’s intricate ventilation system, wells, and water channels are also impressive feats of engineering that speak to the ingenuity of its ancient builders.
