#12 - Sarikale
Sarikale (Yellow Fortress) is a rock outcropping whose cliffs rise 60m above the ground. The summit of Sarikale can only be accessed from the southeast, where ruins remain of a fortification wall with a gate and bastions. In Byzantine times this complex was reused and additional fortifications were built; this may have been the palace of the official who ruled the Byzantine settlement to the southeast of Sarikale. Hittite remnants at the top of Sarikale include masonry, bedding for stone blocks and a cistern with remains of a corbeled vault.
