The Mysterious Derinkuyu Underground City in Ancient Cappadocia, Turkey – 10,000 BC | Megalithomania

October 26, 2019 By

Andrew Collins, Hugh Newman and Graham Hancock explore one of the prehistoric underground cave cities of Anatolia, that could be up to 12,000 years old. It has at least 18 levels, with over 20 km of tunnels, with huge circular stone doors, massive wells and air vents. Its purpose is unknown but it has been speculated it was to hide from some type of cataclysm or invaders. Andrew Collins presents part of a lecture about the site and the team visit the underground city on the Megalithomania ‘Origins of Civilization’ tour in September 2013.

    Persians were the masters of ancient Canals. Look at their 100s of km Qanats, as a form of precise canals, to guide water in to more dry area to create their Gardens.

    Maybe they did just think it was safer for them down there against enemies and wild animals. I doubt they did it because they knew bad weather was coming. The rain will flood these cities, the wind will travel down and blow out their light. Maybe they wanted a cooler environment.

    The question I wonder about is how were the caves lit in such an enormous area. Seems like candles, torches or oil lamps would have produced far too much smoke and carbon monoxide to keep the caves inhabitable.

    hmm how does they light up the underground areas?
    with fire/torch ?

    Why would they go underground in the first place? Why underground instead of on the surface?

    Where are all the above-ground deposits of the excavation materials? There should be piles and piles of them around Cappadocia. There needs to be more research by the people themselves. Surely there was some history handed down through families. This is incomplete and just remains a mystery. Did they find any bones in those underground cities. Obviously these tunnels have been cleared for tourism. Who did that and when? What all did they find in there? Were people and animal remains disposed of above ground? If so, there should be tons of bones somewhere unless they cremated.

    جب زمین مسلمانوں کو گھٹنے اور پڑھتے ہیں تو زیر زمین کے قدیم زمانے میں قدیم اوقات کی پیدائش کی جگہ متقابلہ ماں اور شہر کے شہر اور شہر مسجد اور میتھت معنی معنی میں مریم سیست یا وسیلہ یا مٹی کا شہر منہاج القرآن سے محبت کرتا ہے. یاد رکھیں کہ اندھیرے میں آنے والے اندھیرے سے بھی آتے ہیں را را سور نے بھی سبھی آنکھوں کو بھی حساس سمندری اعلی فری فریکوئینسی کے ساتھ دیکھیں

    this could have been built for some another alien race that is atmospheric conditions that are harmful to them on surface. They technically can regulate air from outside to inside and also regulate sun light and heat or radiation coming from the sun or maybe the frequency coming from the dome. Which means it also could be a laboratory or factory of some kind that requires regulations from atmospheric conditions. Or it could be a some kinds of geo-tech device that could harness geo energy , vibration or sound similar to pyramids or stone circles. For certain, no human could have done this for purpose of being safe from raids. It would be crazy like only mainstream science could come up with as an only fair assumption.

    To escape a catsclisim they had to know it was coming with time to create them. More like they built them in fear of a recurance of an event.

    Does anyone know if the original guy that found it saw any artifacts in there? Or did he discover it completely empty without a bowl or anything? I can't imagine people leaving there and leaving it absolutely empty?....
