|2011||Tentative list||Submitted as tentative site by State Party|Bruce and Jan Brooks (USA):
My wife Jan and I visited Gobeklitepe about five years ago. It was just at the end of the dig season so there weren't many people (or tourists) at the site. We were guided through and around the site by a young man who was very familiar with all that had gone on. Unfortunately he spoke no English so my Turkish had to suffice. Overall it is a spectacular site and one we would really like to revisit.
The museum in Urfa had a wonderful display of articles found at the site. I can only imagine the additions they have been able to make since our visit. I hope that our health will permit us to make another visit.
As with many of the other places we have visited in Turkiye we highly recommend it to our friends.
We flew to Urfa from Istanbul, an easy connection and a very enjoyable flight.
