I’ve never been there but it looks pretty cool, especially the map from @Adirondackwannabe‘s link: http://www.exohuman.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/derinkuyu_map.jpg
It looks like an ant farm. And I’ve always wanted to see what ant colonies look like.

Hey Adiron, thanks for that map. Its great.
So, what do you think about that? Awed?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

It’s unbelievable. They built that way back then without power tools? Awed is a start. The engineering is amazing.

Khajuria9's avatar

YES, you are right, Adiron. The mystery just begins there. U haven’t heard about that before?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I have never heard of it ever before, until you brought it up. And I’m pretty well read. But I’ll stop learning the day they put me in the box. Thanks for that question.

Adiron, you are awesome. Cheers. :) :)

Imagine how easy it would be to get lost in that maze of a city.

I learned about this a while back by running searches on famous abandoned cities. Difference with this one is, parts of it are still maintained, and you can go visit it. Well not all of it, a lot of parts are blocked off, and with good reason. Some parts might be unsafe, and the unmaintainable ones, well you might get lost in them. What I’d like to know is if there are connection points between that one and the other underground cities found under Cappodocia.

When I think about it, it’s just freakin’ awesome. I’d love to visit those, maintained or not. Well with a guide anyways. I know nothing about these to form a proper opinion, but from what I know and see, I certainly would never miss the opportunity to see it live, if the chance came up. I like looking up and reading about anything abandoned, because of the history behind it, but seeing it for real would, I imagine, be something else entirely.
