Göbeklitepe, Turkish for "Potbelly Hill" is the oldest and largest known temple in history. The construction of Göbeklitepe – a structure that includes lines of mammoth columns and heavy stones - still remains a mystery, as tools such as wheelbarrows, etc., did not exist. It is believed that human and pack animal labour was most likely used to transport and place the stones of the temple. The reliefs of animal figures on the columns are definitely beyond time. Göbeklitepe is an ancient structure that reveals that humans had systematic meetings even when they lived as hunters, but the structure’s ultimate purpose is still unclear.
