Hattusha had two circles of city walls, the inner section was made up by a citadel, administrative buildings and temples. The Great Temple is presently the largest structure. It dates back to the 14th century BCE, and was dedicated to the storm god, Teshuba, and sun goddess, Hebut. The temple proper is built according to universal principles.   A large site dating back to BCE, the site has remains of walls, gates and a tunnel. That description does not do justice to Hattusha. Wander the site, preferably with a good guide or buy a guidebook in English at the Museum, which should not be missed TripAdvisor reviews.

HATTUSHA. Hattusha was the capital of the Hittite Empire in the late Bronze Age. It is situated near modern Boğazkale, within the great loop of the Kızıl River in Çorum. There were several other settlements in the vicinity, such as the rock shrine at Yazılıkaya and the town at Alacahöyük. Hattusha was their centre of power and hence has a majestic history surrounding it. The site also includes temples to the deities of Hittites like the Storm god. When visiting Hattusha, do not miss out observing the Yazilikaya which is an inscribed rock and is a few kilometres away from the main ruins.
