Yesemek Open Air Museum - Review

On a hill near Yesemek village is an open air museum. The hill is actually a Hittite stone quarry, since the year 1375 BC. And on it is found a volcanic derivative- Basalt. For over 600 years, this quarry has churned out basalt blocks. Out of them were made various life-size artistic models. Some were completed, some still stand incomplete. This place will take you back to the ages when skilled workmen were also part-time artisans. And good ones at that! The drive from Gazianteep will take a little more than 2 hours, but it’s totally worth it. All the history and mineral enthusiasts will have a ball. Highlights include:

  • Lions sphinxes and other models
  • A gentle stream
  • An outdoor studio
  • A friendly staff
  • Exhibits of the contemporary and modern artists
  • A cafeteria and a small library

  • An Unbelievable area waiting to be discovered

  • Yol çok bozuk araba dans ediyo resmen yolda. Gittiğinizde görebileceğiniz herşey nette göreceğiniz resimler kadar. Herhangi bir tesis ve bilgi veren kimse yok. İlla ki ben görecem diyen varsa aynı taşın daha detaylı işlenmiş hali Gaziantep Müzesinde var.

  • Dünya tarihi açısından oldukça değerli bir tarihe sahip fakat gel görelim ki kaderine terkedilmiş. Bir güvenlik personeli yok ayrıca oraya giden yollarda hep göçük içinde. Çukura düşmeden gitmeniz imkansız

  • Çok tarihi bir yer fakat ilgilenen yok. Kazıların bir kısmı yapılamamış. Tanıtımı ve bakımı yapılması gereken hoş bir yer.

  • Heykellerin kabataslak yapilip ince iscilik icin tilmen hoyuke goturulup hititlerin baskenti corum a ordan da misira kadar gorurulmus. Inanolmaz bir hikayesi var 10 tonluk dev aslan heykeli dag tanrilari kadin heykelleri ve dunyada esi benzeri olmayan ayi insan heykeli. Savas arabasi heykeli 100donum arazisi var. opet e tesekkurler
