The cotton castle

Have you ever heard about Pamukkale? Its a place in Turkey. It sounds pretty beautiful. The word Pamukkale means cotton castle in Turkish. The site gets its name from the numerous cascading white pools with bright aqua water surfaces. From a distance, the white limestone walls seem to resemble an immense castle of fluffy cotton. These limestone walls were formed by the calcium-rich water from the springs and forms a soft jelly and eventually hardens into limestone. The place has 17 hot water springs, which began to flow down to the surface with incredible speeds and simultaneously began to evaporate in the sun. It has several health benefits, for instance the ability to lower blood pressure and alleviate rheumatism. This natural phenomenon is a breathtaking view and an extraordinary natural wonder. You must visit this place to see the natural rock pool, planning on going?
