cappadocia - police station - jandarma (turkey)


The coolest Police Station ever!

This is a Jandarma (that means "police post" in Turkish) near Göreme in Cappadocia (Turkey)

The police station was carved probably centuries ago, and it might have been an ancient roman tomb, since most of the carved hoodoos (or Fairy chimneys) in Cappadocia are in fact ancient tombs, later converted into houses.­

The eroded rock formations of Cappadocia look like sandstone, but it is actually volcanic tuff, a type of rock consisting of consolidated volcanic ash that originated from ancient volcanic eruptions in the region.­
