Akbuk, Didim Video
Akbuk is surrounded by green forests and lovely beaches. The ground is
fairly level, making it perfect for building, and it has a building restriction
that only bungalows or two storey properties can be constructed. This will mean
that the area will have a wealth of large detached villas with large gardens and
will therefore be very upmarket and command high prices. The low 15% building
permission is restricted to help prevent the area looking built up. The
government has restricted that 85% of the land in Akbuk has to remain as green
area. In contrast to Altinkum, Akbuk is largely untouched and unspoilt by the
tourist industry. Akbuk offers blue flag beaches, shops, restaurants and bars.
Akbuk is within easy driving distance of a number of stunning sights including
Bafa Lake and the Apollon Temple. It has easy access to Altinkum and many other
cultural and social activities, whether it is enjoying the local cuisine or
enjoying a sense of history by visiting the ruined Roman city of Ephesus, there
is plenty to do for everyone!
Turkey / Türkei - Didyma Apollontempel / Temple of Apollon
Didyma (Greek: Δίδυμα) was an ancient Ionian sanctuary, the modern Didim,
Turkey, containing a temple and oracle of Apollo, the Didymaion. In Greek didyma
means "twin", but the Greeks who sought a "twin" at Didyma ignored the Carian
origin of the name. Next to Delphi, Didyma was the most renowned oracle of the
Hellenic world, first mentioned among the Greeks in the Homeric Hymn to Apollo,
but an establishment preceding literacy and even the Hellenic colonization of
Ionia. Mythic genealogies of the origins of the Branchidae line of priests,
designed to capture the origins of Didyma as a Hellenic tradition, date to the
Didyma was the largest and most significant sanctuary
on the territory of the great classical city Miletus. To approach it, visitors
would follow the Sacred Way to Didyma, about 17 km long. Along the way, were
ritual waystations, and statues of members of the Branchidae family, male and
female, as well as animal figures. Some of these statues, dating to the 6th
century BC are now in the British Museum, taken by Charles Newton in the 19th
Greek and Roman authors laboured to refer the name Didyma to
"twin" temples — not a feature of the site — or to temples of the twins, Apollo
and Artemis, whose own cult center at Didyma was only recently established, or
whether, as Wilamowitz suggested there is a connection to Cybele Dindymene,
"Cybele of Mount Dindymon", is mooted. Recent excavations by the German team of
archaeologists have uncovered a major sanctuary dedicated to Artemis, with the
key ritual focus being water.
The 6th-century Didymaion, dedicated to
Apollo, enclosed its smaller predecessor, which archaeologists have identified.
Its treasury was enriched by gifts from Croesus.
