Inner Aegean region at a distance of 20 km from the town of Denizli.
This rapidly developing district in the Menderes valley, which
enjoys a temperate climate over the greater part of the year, has
all the conditions required for an ideal touristic resort.The
tectonic movements that took place in the fault depression of the
Menderes river basin gave rise to the emergence of a number of very
hot springs, and it is the water from one of these springs, with its
large mineral content, chalk in particular, that has created the
natural wonder now known as Pamukkale (Cotton Fortress)element found
in water is Calcium and Carbondioxide.This
is the reason of the white layers and the travertines.The waters,
wich include Aluminum and sulfur in the composition, are especially good for the health.
So, these spas are frequently visited because of this.These waters made the city and important cure and health
center with its many public and private baths.This water has been
good for coroner diseases, high blood pressure and arteriosclerosis.Another
specality of this water is, that cures skin diseases, allergic cases,and
also good in strenghthening and curing the eye muscles.
Hierapolis City Plan
Many temples were built in order to treat people, and the priests
would take care of their patients in these temples.Not only ill
people would come to the spas.Counsils, kings and philosopfers too,would
visit Hierapolis to have fun and to entertain themselves.
