Pamukkale originated around 2 million years ago because two earth crusts collided.
This created new mountains.
Due the earthquakes as a result of the collision, the rainwater landed on a layer of limestone.
The heat evaporated the lime, when it became cooler the carbon dioxide disappers and the white sediment remains.
And this created Pamukkale.
Since the Roman Time people were convinced that the calcareous spring water was good for the skin and muscles.
That is why Pamukkale was very popular by the Roman people.
After enjoying the beautiful natural wonder and immersin yourself several times in the lime water of Pamukkale, you will visit the ancient village of Hierapolis.
The Greek city of Hierapolis was found in 190 BC and was close to the 'Roman Spa' and today you can still enjoy the ancient ruins of the Temple of Apollo, a bathhouse and a theater.
The city was mainly under Roman influence, so the buildings were mainly built in Roman style.
With the advent of Christianity, a basilic was built where Apostle Philip is buried.
You have some time to walk through all these ruins.
On the way back to Marmaris, you stop at a small textile factory.
Here you can see how textile is made here.
Souvenirs can also be purchased here.
