The history of Kaymakli Underground City goes back to 3000 BC. This city, built during the Hittites Period, has eight floors. Kaymakli, which was expanded into an underground city by carving other areas during the Roman and Byzantine periods, was carved into tuff rocks. There are rooms and halls connected to each other by narrow corridors in the area, which is suitable for the housing conditions necessary for a community to live. There are wine tanks, water cellars, kitchen and food warehouses, ventilation shafts, water wells, a church, and large bolt stones that close the door from the inside to prevent any danger from the outside.
