Cappadocia (from Ancient Greek: Καππαδοκία) is a historical region in Central Anatolia, largely in the Nevşehir, Kayseri, Aksaray, and Niğde Provinces in Turkey. In the time of Herodotus, the Cappadocians were reported as occupying the whole region from Mount Taurus to the vicinity of the Euxine (Black Sea). Cappadocia, in this sense, was bounded in the south by the chain of the Taurus Mountains that separate it from Cilicia, to the east by the upper Euphrates and the Armenian Highland, to the north by Pontus, and to the west by Lycaonia and eastern Galatia. 

The name Cappadocia, traditionally used in Christian sources throughout history, continues in use as an international tourism concept to define a region of exceptional natural wonders, in particular characterised by geological structures known as 'fairy chimneys' and a unique historical and cultural heritage.

A hoodoo (also called a tent rock, fairy chimney, and earth pyramid) is a tall, thin spire of rock that protrudes from the bottom of an arid drainage basin or badland. Hoodoos, which may range from 1.5–45 metres, typically consist of relatively soft rock topped by harder, less easily eroded stone that protects each column from the elements. They generally form within sedimentary rock and volcanic rock formations. Hoodoo shapes are affected by the erosional patterns of alternating hard and softer rock layers. Minerals deposited within different rock types cause hoodoos to have different colours throughout their height.

  1. Incredible rock formations! What an interesting post.

  2. I love Turkey and Capadocia is on my wishlist. My parents went there. I like the Hoodoo's (thanks for that word) a lot. Very intriguing. Also in central Anatolia is Konaya where the tomb is of Rumî the poet.
    I will join next year again in your meme It's summertime over here and holidays are starting

  3. I have wanted to visit Capadocia for so long, yet somehow still haven't gotten there. One day, I hope.

  4. Thanks for much for hosting this fun meme/challenge every week! When I hear Cappadocia, the first that comes to mind is the travel of Paul the apostle. These hoodoo's are very pronounced!

  5. Very nice capture. Interesting post.
