An ancient city situated around a big sinkhole in Mersin Province, Turkey. Kanlıdivane was a part of the Olba kingdom in the ancient age. By the first century, Olba kingdom became a part of Roman Empire. Byzantine Emperor Theodosius II rebuilt the city as a Christian religious center and renamed it Neopolis. There are ruins of basilicas, cisterns, rock cut graves etc. around the sinkhole.
We call it as Kanlıdivane now...Kanlıdivane means \"bloody lunatic\". This may refer to the red color of the surrounding soil. The name may also refer to a dreadful legend according to which the criminals had been executed by throwing into the sinkhole during Roman times...
