3) Caves of Heaven and Hell

Caves of heaven and hell are located 1.4 km on the northwest of Narlikuyu in Turkey. This site is an attraction for a lot of tourists with natural phenomena and also as a historical spot of curiosity. There is a large hole on the ground known as the “Corycian Caves” in which there are ancient eras of Greek myths, according to which it was the home of the Monster Typhoon, a 100m ahead from the heaven. The walls are too vertical which is pretty hard to access, so you can’t go down into it (in other meanings, you can’t go to hell). During the past, they used to throw criminals and sinners in the cave as a punishment. At the entry of the cave, there is a church which is named after a virtuous man Paulus, which is considered to be the way to heaven.

london-top-attractions-trafalgar-square

Two of London’s best-known tourist spots, these famous squares lie not far apart and mark the gateways to Soho, London’s lively theater and entertainment district. Trafalgar Square was built to commemorate Lord Horatio Nelson’s victory over the French and Spanish at Trafalgar in 1805. Nelson’s Column, a 56-meter granite monument, overlooks the square’s fountains and bronze reliefs, which were cast from French cannons. Admiralty Arch, St Martin-in-the-Fields, and the National Gallery surround the square. Piccadilly Circus marks the irregular intersection of several busy streets – Piccadilly, Regent, Haymarket, and Shaftesbury Avenue – and overlooking this somewhat untidy snarl of traffic stands London’s best-known sculpture, the winged Eros delicately balanced on one foot, bow poised. “It’s like Piccadilly Circus” is a common expression describing a busy and confusing scene.
