Published on March 6th, 2014 | by Admin



The ancient city of Tralleis in western Turkey, which was damaged by a number of earthquakes, is set to undergo restoration efforts.

“A structure which formed the entrance gate of the gymnasium building, and which became the symbol of Ayd?n, suffered the heaviest damage due to earthquakes,” said Ayd?n Culture and Tourism Director Nuri Aktakka. “As part of a project, it will be strengthened and illuminated so that it will even be seen from the entrance of the city. Also, restorations have been continuing to revive a columned road that was discovered in Tralleis. The ancient city will become a place worth a visit within a year.”
