Travel Photo: Hierapolis Theatre, Turkey

Seating close to 15,000 people and nearly 2000 years old, the amphitheatre at Hierapolis is a sight that leaves you speechless. It is part of the ancient holy city that is a UNESCO world heritage site and one that is situated among the beautiful hot water springs and travertines. This was the place where plays, gladiator fights and other performances were played in the hey days. It is located on a hill and is designed with great acoustic taste.

Even today, if you sing a song here, the sound booms through the theater and which showcases the knowledge of acoustic engineering even in that age. In my mind, that is truly amazing. In fact, every bit of this ancient holy city captures one’s imagination. It is no wonder that this place is immensely popular with all tourists visiting Turkey.
