This site is quite difficult to reach, as it is in a vast mountain range with dirt track roads. At the top, there is a small museum and minimal facilities. The site is the mausoleum of Antiochus I (69–34 B.C.), who reigned over Commagene. Commagene was a kingdom founded north of Syria, in what we know as Turkey. The site is a UNESCO World Heritage location and is considered one of the most ambitious constructions of the Hellenistic period. Once you get up to the museum, you purchase a ticket and are taken by mini bus to the peak where the ruins are located.
