The rock-cut tombs of Dalyan

Dalyan, on the southwest coast of Turkey, is not a beach resort but an inland town that attracts visitors due to the impressive Kaunian rock-cut tombs.

These are the mighty remains of the ancient port city of Kaunos.  It was founded in the tenth century BC, as a port city. With magnificent temple tombs cut high on the face of the rocky mountains ( to properly enjoy the sight, take a boat trip) you can drive to the highest point on the cliffs, which used to be a gateway to the city’s harbour. From here you see Dalyan River on one side and Suluklu Lake on the other.
