Pamukkale waters are believed to have curative powers and have been used as a thermal bath for centuries. Pamukkale, noted for its excellent characteristics, was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1988.
Located near to Pamukkale is Hierapolis which was founded in 200 BC by Eumenes II in dedication to the Amazon Queen Hiera and wife of Telephos, the founder of Pergamum. Hierapolis is a popular ancient site that attracts worldwide attention for its grand monuments and buildings.
