Mount Nemrut is a 2206 m (7237 ft.) high mountain, located in the Adiyaman Province in Southeastern Turkey. It is an impressive moment, when the sunrise begins on Mount Nemrut, when slowly spreads the first light across the fascinating landscape of mountains, then shining to the eastern terrace of the tomb sanctuary and the original stone heads of King Antiochos, Zeus and other gods figures from the Kommagene time in the 1st century BC.
