Pictures of Turkey

Termessos theatre

It is over a month ago now that I was in Turkey, a Christmas vacation with fellow students of Sri Chinmoy, spiritual darshan in the land where West meets East, Levi's meet prayer mats, amateur photographer meets spectacular scenery—myself the former and Antalya the later—ancient Mediterranean city of heaven-reaching mountains and endless beaches, and not a few tourists.

The following are a series of image galleries from Antalya, Turkey; sights from the city itself, beaches and mountains, and a visit to the ancient mountain-top ruins of Termessos, an eagle's nest 1500m above the city which Alexander the Great chose to bypass rather than invade in 333BC.
