Geologic Formation of the rocks and caves in Cappadocia;
Over 60 millions year back, in the Geologic ages Taurus mountains raised. when the Anatolia Plato had squashed volcanoes got activated. Erciyes, Hasandagi and the Golludagi in between, had started to spray volcanic lava and ashes to the area. The ashes gained together on the Plato started to have some tuff layer. The upper side of these tufa got covered with the hard basalt of the volcano from time to time. Over years, the rain had started to flow on these tuffs and the wind got in action too, which made these mushroom shaped rock formations and caves in all over the area. After Cappadocia gained its formation over thousands, millions of years, the local people gave a name to these strange,funny and interesting formed rocks; "Fairy Chimneys"
