Soganli Valley : An Abandoned Village with Old Churches – Chapter 2

The Abandoned Village of Soganli

 

Inside the valley is a little town that I am speculating comprises of approximately 20 places of which evidently, all occupants have left with the exception of one elderly nobleman who declines to move. There is a consistent clarification for their renunciation, on the grounds that on top of the slope behind the town is a huge shake structure.

 

Now and again, it extricates in the structure in this manner raining expansive rocks on the town underneath. So the administration moved everybody except the old nobleman has gotten down to business and local people say, he will never go out. Sentimentality has a great deal to respond in due order regarding now and again.

 

A portion of the houses, arranged at various levels on the slope were congested with greenery and at a certain point, I didn’t understand that I was remaining on the top of another house. Dreading its crumple, I immediately dashed off to meander around alternate places of which the front passage wooden entryways were gradually spoiling.

 

On window outlines, I recognized a swoon hint of the dynamic blue paint that additionally normally embellishes houses in the South-east. The primary reason for the shading is to drive off scorpions and I have perused of the trap being utilized as a part of sports like America and Africa. I don’t know whether it really works, however, was more concerned in light of the fact that I never understood the Cappadocia district had scorpions!

 

Turkey’s most celebrated surrendered town is maybe Kayakoy on the Mediterranean drift yet Soganli likewise has that creepy vibe, that makes you think about whether the phantoms of prior inhabitants still lives on. As we were leaving, a Turkish lady sitting on a little rock coaxed me over.

 

I chose not to go, in the event that it was a traveler trap and she would dispatch into a business spiel about her uncommon carefully assembled souvenirs.(Soganli is well known for little dolls made by local people).

 

Possibly she wasn’t offering keepsakes however and simply needed to talk with another person and not the commonplace countenances of this little tight-sew group. Lamentably, I now understand that on-the-spot choice to leave implies I will never know her story.
