NAR CRATER LAKE

Nar Gölü (Nar Lake or Lake Pomegranate) is a crater lake that was formed when a volcano blew its top some time in the not too distant geological past. The hot sulfurous water, which still bubbles up from somewhere below the surface, is supposed to be good for curing all kinds of skin problems. It is about 36 km southeast of Aksaray in Cappadocia. It is about 12 km northwest of Nazianzos, best known as the seat of fourth-century bishop Gregory of Nazianzos, one of the Cappadocian Fathers. Walking around on the burnt-looking soil of the crater sides you may notice that it has become the home of a wide variety of birds, and it is also possible to come across the shiny jet black obsidian that was prized by Paleolithic and Neolithic people for making tools and weapons that were sharper than surgical steel. Hot water surging out from the south and north shores of the lake is supposed to be useful in treating rheumatism and many people from neigh­bouring villages come here for a cure.
