Columns of Laodicea Unearthed
Famous for its thousands of years old precious sites such as Pamukkale and Hierapolis, Denizli province has become a major archeological site with many excavation works still in progress. Some ancient columns, which have been under the ground for more than 1,500 years, have been unearthed at the ancient site of Laodicea. Destroyed by an earthquake in 494 AD and earthed up since then, the columns are planned to be erected again in the Northern Agora. In addition to the antique columns, new cultural assets are uncovered every day as the excavations on site continue.
