Not our first time to see the tombs and hopefully not the last. Awe inspiring feat of workmanship set high in the rock face and especially appreciated when viewed floodlit at night. One not to be missed

Set in the mountain opposite the boats are the rock tombs of Dalyan. During the day is the best to see them, although at night they light them up. Apparently these are over 3000 years old.

At the time of visiting (May 2017) we weren't able to visit the tombs, however just seeing them from either the ground or on the Dalyan River was awe inspiring. Truly eye-catching, they tower over Dalyan town with sheer magnificence, a sight to behold indeed for adults and children alike.

We passed the rock tombs on our way by river to Ishtuzu - what an amazing surprise they were! Our tour guide was very informative, only wish we could've got up closer. Would love to see this at night as I hear they are lit up, but we we weren't staying in Dalyman and had to get back. Next time!

Visited part of an excursion to turtle beach. Our guide gave us very detailed information about the history of the tombs as well as the myth. Worth a visit when passing!

These tombs are spectacular. They are not accessible just yet. Plans are afoot to create access but for now you need a good telephoto lens . When lit up at night they are spectacular. There are a few others one by the river and one in land that you can access and go inside both are unfinished and no where... More

One is enguılfed in a sense of being lost in "eternal" nature of the world when visiting the tombs. The location is close to town center and the lovely yacht harbor.
