Phrygian Valleys Around 750 BCE, the Phrygians emerged as a powerful tribe, gaining political supremacy in the region. The Hittite Empire's decline around 1200 years ago led to migration from the western lands. The Phrygian Valley is a magnificent region distinguished by its natural beauty and vastness. It is home to canals, rock formations, ancient ruins, open-air temples, fairy chimneys, and a rich history spanning three thousand years. The Phrygians left a lasting cultural legacy in the region between Afyonkarahisar and Eskisehir-Kütahya. Their artistic creations, such as temple facades depicting the Mother Goddess Kybele Cult, are noteworthy for their embossed lion reliefs, carved from large rock blocks. These works bear testimony to the Phrygians' creativity and valuable contributions to the region's cultural heritage. The Phrygian Valley is home to several significant rock-cut monuments, including Aslantaş and Yılantaş, located in the north of Afyonkarahisar. Another important monument is Maltaş, situated in İhsaniye District's Göynüş Valley. Additionally, Kapıkaya I and II are located near Döğer town. The valley's must-see attractions include Aslankaya, Kapıkaya 1-2, and Maltaş open-air temples, Ayazini ruins, and Yedikapılar. The Memeç rock settlements, Avdalaz and Bayramaliler castles, and other historical sites like Kırkinler, Seyildi fairy chimneys, Ağın rock settlement, Ornaş rock settlement, and Selimiye Rock tombs are also of great cultural and historical significance. Visitors to the Phrygian Valley are treated to a wealth of archaeological treasures and stunning natural landscapes.
