Stone Cold Cool: Kayakapi Premium Caves

The sun climbs into the sky and shines down on the village of Ürgüp in Cappadocia. The narrow roads mapped through the ochre terrain wind uphill towards what is, perhaps, one of the first settlement zones in Cappadocia: the historical site of the Kayakapi neighbourhood. Referred to as the ‘landowner’s neighbourhood’ by the locals, the site is currently being restored to its initial glory under the initiative of Mustafa Dinler and his family. Saddened by the sight of the once bustling residential neighbourhood turning to shambles, the family decided to do their bit and fix things up. The project took off with adequate support from UNESCO and the World Heritage Center, since the site comprises hundreds of ancient cave houses and historical structures.
