Artist's Description

Canon EOS 400D
Canon EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
The earliest remains that have been uncovered go back as far as the 10th century BC when the Neo Hittites raised a temple on this site.
It became a citadel under the Seleucids 4th-1st centuries BC and was used for residence and a fortress by Ghazi and also suffered from the Mongol invasions in 1269AD and 1400AD.
The sole entrance into the Citadel is through the south outer tower. This defended the stone arched bridge, which covered the 30 metre wide moat. The door is placed on a sidewall with a closed wall facing it to limit the space needed to ram the door down. Once inside, the corridor takes several 90 degree turns to slow down attackers. There are massive doors which were a formidable obstacle once closed. There is almost no light inside, with only a few holes in the ceiling, rays of sunlight shed some light into the dark corridors.
