Information About Caves of Heaven and Hell
It is a large pit formed by the collapse of the ceiling by chemical erosion caused by an underground stream. Ellipse-shaped mouth diameter 250 m. and 110 m. and its depth is 70 meters. 200 m. length and deepest point 135 m. there is a large cave entrance and a small church at the mouth of this cave.
The 4-line inscription on the entrance door of the church states that this church was built by a devout person named Paulus in the 1st century as a dedication to the Virgin Mary. A very large 452-step stone staircase descends into the paradise collapse. The church is reached at step 300. At the end of the cave after the church, the sound of a mythological underground creek is heard. There are two important karstic pits in the Mediterranean Region near the Narlıkuyu district on the Mersin-Silifke road. These collapse structures, called Obruk, developed within the plateau of limestone. Heaven and hell are deep potholes with sharp angles. These two large pits correspond to two chimneys formed by the deposition of the upper part of the underground cave system. Large blocks and masses, which fell from the top of the roof during the collapse of the ceiling, are encountered.
Cave of Heaven
About 200 m southwest of the pit of heaven, the heavenly pond is about 135 m deep. This is a debris and is formed as a result of karstic processes in shallow marine limestone layers formed during the Miocene period. The north slope of the penitentiary is quite steep. Obruk developed by the collapse of the ceiling of a gallery in a closed karstic cave system. This system, which we can also call an underground stream, continues its activity today and passes under the base surface of the Hell pit formed on the river road. Narlıkuyu from the depths of the land, karstic sources in the form of the Mediterranean Sea. The end of the path down to the base of the stairway leading to the base of the Hellenistic Temple of Zeus is a period. It is thought that the stairs lead to this period. You can easily go down to the bottom of the obrus. The sound of the river passing through the ground can easily be heard at the contact site of this surface.
Cave of Hell
The pit of hell, which has a depth of approximately 110 m, was formed as a result of the collapse of an underwater cave system roof that was opened by a karstic underground stream, which led to the formation of the Paradise Burrow. From the base of the pavilion, an underground stream passes underneath the bottom of the Heavenly Dane in the west. Because the pit of the pit is concave and narrower and steeper than the heavenly collapse, it is not possible to descend to its base, it can be descended by a special mountaineer rope or flexible staircase.
