Cappadocia’s Nevşehir Province in Turkey, the home of 200 underground cities

Dearest Marty, love of my life,

You probably heard that Derinkuyu was rediscovered in 1963, in Nevşehir Province in Turkey. Somebody knocked in a wall and there it was, access to a multilevel underground city. Allegedly, nobody knew who built it, why it was built and when. It had wells and 1500 ventilation shafts that are 55m long and air reached each room down there, even the deepest, and they had water wells down there too. These wells were not connected to the surface so that nobody could poison or contaminate them. Smart. 

Just as with the pyramids in Giza, the towers in Tibet and so many other buildings and discoveries, all the evidence for their true purposes are lacking or they are misinterpreted.

Derinkuyu had a school and study rooms underground. A hell of a lot more sophisticated and impressive than the flat and short “schlupfs” underneath Bavaria and Austria.

The underground city of Derinkuyu is 18 (!) stories deep and runs 60 meters below the surface. Derinkuyu had space to house 20.000 people comfortably underground. 20.000! The architecture is very interesting. This city has an extensive network of corridors that are inclined, doors, stepped pits, tunnels, and passages that helped to connect communal spaces and family apartments. These huge stone doors allowed to seal off each level separately. Apparently, a great escape plan in case of danger. 

It reminds me to the Giza plateau and that there are several levels of rooms and tunnels down there as well, in addition to the pyramids. 

After they discovered underground Derinkuyu again in 1963, people are talking about why underground cities as these were built. Most believe that it served as shelter during natural disasters or raids by invaders. The doors are clear giveaways that this society were aware of invaders and tried to protect itself. One can open the doors only from the inside. Here is a picture:

Not easy to slam these doors in, right? Apparently defense. There is no doubt when looking at the doors. One could look through the hole and recognize friend or enemy. More and more historians believe that this Earth has seen advanced technology, e.g. aircrafts in ancient times. Derinkuyu was hidden from anyone who flew over it. If enemies arrived on the land way, if they would have found one shaft, passage, and some rooms, residents could close the other doors with those rocks and escape through other tunnels.

However, I make another claim, Marty. I say that the underground cities served preservation of youth as not living on the unprotected surface stops aging of the body. I know sunlight makes many people happy, but it lets the body age fast. Just as with the pyramids, I think that records and objects from the original society were stolen from this underground city. Later civilizations might have used the rooms for other purposes as they were originally intended.

All in all, Derinkuyu it is one amazing place. Although the stone is relatively soft in these region, nothing caved in, which means that this architect or these architects knew what they were doing and had advanced knowledge of the area, the stones, architecture and engineering.

There are more than just 7 world wonders on this planet.

The Turkish government estimates that Derinkuyu was built approx. 5000 years ago. Approx. 4500 years ago, that was the time when somebody had slaughtered the original Europeans and eradicated their DNA completely.      

Many tender and passionate kisses, Marty. On the ground or underground, you are the most attractive Prince ever. Can’t wait to put my arms around you. Our love is timeless. But it is time that we find each other again. If I would see your face outside these 500kg heavy stone doors, I would roll them away for you in a heartbeat and let you enter, Marty.  Mi casa es su casa. I love you.

Yours,

Sarah/Barbara
