I introduce Pamukkale that is a great white lime terrace. 

We encounter an impressive superb view, a homely village of Islam, a hot spring of hotel, and ruins of Roman times.

 

壮大な白亜の石灰段丘パムッカレを紹介します。

感動の絶景、素朴なイスラムの村、リゾートホテルの温泉、ローマ遺跡が出迎えてくれます。

The width (the horizontal direction of above photograph) of this terrace is about 1 km, and the length of the slope is more than 500 m.

We see a pastoral scene, a village, and hotels below our eyes.

Hierapolis that is ruins of Roman times is on the upper part of this lime terrace.

 

この段丘の巾(上記写真の左右方向)は約1km、斜面の長さは500m以上あります。

眼下に、田園地帯と村、ホテル群が見えます。

この石灰段丘の上部にはローマ時代の遺跡ヒエラポリスがあります。

 Farming villages were scattered in dry mountain valley.

When our bus had deviated from the main road, we saw farmhouses that were scattered.

I took a stroll through nearby village after supper.        

There were souvenir shops in a line along a main street, and there were as many as two mosques between 500 m in length.

When I just heard Koran, many people had gathered inside and outside the mosque and begun to give prayer.

Dusk approached before long, and a moon came up the mosque.

I watched simple life without changing from old days on the land.

 

 

幹線道路から外れると古びた農家が点在していた。

私は夕食後、近くの村を散策した。

一本の大通りには土産物屋が並んでおり、長さ500mぐらいの間にモスクが二つもあった。

ちょうどコーランが聞こえて来て、モスクの内外に多くの人が集まり、祈りを捧げ始めた。

やがて夕闇が迫り、モスクの上に月が昇った。

昔から変わることのない大地に純朴な暮らしを見た。

 

a hot spring of the hotel

I entered the hot spring of the photograph with swimsuit and it became my pleasant memory.

 

写真奥の温泉に水着で入り、楽しい思い出になりました。

The hot spring that has made this lime terrace is slightly running dry.

The hot spring was flowing in only restricted area, and we could enjoy the footbaths.

 

この石灰段丘を造った温泉が枯渇気味で、水量が不足している。

それでも一部に限り温泉を流していて、足湯を楽しむことが出来る。

 

a hot spring pool 

< 10. a hot spring pool >

Marble pillars of Roman times have sunken in bottom of this hot spring pool.

There was the scene that was created by an azure sky mixing with red flowers, ancient white pillars, and transparent hot spring.

 

この温泉プールの底には、ローマ時代の大理石の柱が横たわっていた。

青空と赤い花、古代の白い柱、透明な温泉が織りなす光景が、そこにはありました。
