Stone tombs made from two heaps close to each other can be seen in Dalyan.It is possible to visit stone tombs on the left on foot.To gop to the ones on the right you need a rob or ladder.One of these tombs is decorated with two lion figures facing each other.The stone tomb on the most right has not been finished.
Gorgeous stone tombs facing Dalyan Canal in Caunos are the continuation of a tradition existing in Anatolia since 1000 BC.Frontal parts which are carved in tample shapes and remains from late archaic ages show tahat these were family tombs built in 4.BC.Caunos is an important city located between Caria and Lycia.And it gave its name to its hinterland until the mid 4BC.It is estimated that the city was founded in 3000 BC.The founder of the city was Milletos's son ,Caunos.There are two different stories about Caunos and his sisters Byblis:Byblis adores her brother Caunos,but Caunos has no interest in her and leaves her.Full of greaf ,Byblis hangs herself.Thus,'Caunos Love 'saying appears after this story.According second story,Caunos was expelled from the city because of his illegal relationshipwith Byblis.At these times Caunos arrives at a region where Carians live and founds Caunos named after himself.Heredot discriminates Caunos people from Lycians and Carials because of their different customs and traditions.

hosgeldin to TE;
what a wonderful view on those world famous tombs - as I can see the picture was taken with a D200, thus you should have enough 'material' to provide us with a bigger picture containing more details!
What a pity you did not chose this possibility.
If you need more info on resizing and sharpening the original, you can send me the original and I will try to get you a better result.
Thanks for the perfect note.

Taş mezarları bende remetmiştim , herhalde sen biraz crop yaptın sadece mezarlar görünsün diye , keşke biraz daha büyük koyabilseydin resmi , yinede eline sağlık
