Olba - Diocaesarea (Uzuncaburc)

The site is located 30 km north of Silifke. It is reached through valleys and forests.
This site originally the Zeus cult center, was separated by Romans from the Hellenistic city of Olba and was given a city state status with a new name Diocaesarea in 72 A.D.
Being one of the religious centers of the Hellenistic era, in the entrance to it there is a theatre dating back to the Roman period, and around it there is a holy road with ancient remains. All the 36 columns of the Zeus Olbios Temple, which is 2,300 years old, surrounded by high walls and with a vast courtyard, are intact. At the end of the holy road is a temple built for Tyche (Fortuna), the goddess of success and good luck. The City Gate which has a monumental character was constructed with cut stones.
