The mystery behind the ancient underwater kingdom in Turkey

Where the wild things are

Tahsin Ceylan, the leader of the dive team, did not expect to find a castle thousands of years old. He simply couldn’t get over this discovery. In an interview with the local press, Tahsin expressed his excitement over the discovery. He further mentioned that the archaeological site was roughly a kilometre wide, with sections of the fortress’s walls ranging from 10 to 13 feet. Purely based on the assessment of the visual images, the rocks are about 3,000 years old

This was definitely not the discovery Ceylon expected. Initially, he wanted to find a sea creature he had heard about in myths. Instead, he found an incredible castle dating back 3,000 years. Ceylon said: « There was a rumor that there might be something under the water, but most archaeologists and museum officials told us we won’t find anything. » He did not go into the project looking for much, so the discovery made him very happy. Further, he got an opportunity to disprove all the naysayers who had discouraged him from the undertaking. But was there some truth in the myth of a sea monster?
