About Turkey


Perge, Antalya / Turkey

According to the writings of the archaic Greek tablets, the Akkadians had settled down in this area in 2,000 B.C. The Greeks that came to the western coast of Anatolia in the 7th Century B.C. were the only masters at that age. Later on, it was ruled by Lydia, then by the Persians, Alexander the Great (334 B.C.), Rome (2nd Century), Pergamum, and again by the Romans (25 B.C.) successively.
The City of Perge seems to be a truthful follower of the Christian belief in the 4th century A.D. It loses its importance in the 7th Century. Perge was a possession of the Seljuk Turks like other cities of the district.

On entering into Perge there is a theatre for 15.000 spectators, a little ahead is the stadium for 27.000 spectators. They are the masterpieces of a mighty and brilliant period. There used to stand the gates of the pillared street, the Agora in the east, the gymnasium on one side erected in honour or Emperor Cladius. The Temple of Artemis of Perge, the relief of which was carved in marbles and coins has not yet been found and unearthed.
