One of Turkey's most imperative late archeological discovers confronts a grave danger because of impacting movement at a stone quarry in the region.
The château, situated at the pinnacle of the Kurul Rocks in Ordu's Bayadı town, has been experiencing archeological unearthings under the course of educator Yücel Şenyurt since 2010.
The disclosure of the noteworthy Kybele design amid late unearthings brought on extraordinary energy, with around 15,000 individuals hurrying to the city to see the model. However, albeit archeological works keep on being directed on the château, explosive is exploded each day on the slant of the Kurul Rocks disregarding the Melet River, making grave peril for the stronghold.
In 1996, the Cultural and Natural Heritage Preservation Board proclaimed the palace as a first-degree archeological and normal site.
The court then wiped out the permit for the quarry, which had been opened inside the secured site. Be that as it may, in 2011, Kırca Engineering, which works the quarry, guaranteed that the quarry and the palace were situated on various rocks masses and properly asked for that the span of the ensured site be lessened.
In spite of the fact that the master report requested by the Ordu Administrative Court expressed that the quarry could totally crush the château, the Ordu Museum and the leader of the unearthings, Şenyurt, made an alternate report, expressing that the field of the quarry could be prohibited from the archeological site.
In like manner, the court endorsed the demand to absolved the quarry zone from the archeologically secured zone.
As a result of the exercises at the quarry, be that as it may, shake tombs under the manor are purportedly being crushed.
Earthy people respond
The leader of the Ordu Environmental Association, Gül Ersan, communicated outrage that Şenyurt had educated specialists that the quarry would not harm the palace.
"Archeologists can't approach the holes; they are taking a gander at them from a separation. They say that the pottery that they discovered near the quarry may have originated from the top. The court requested an assessment from him and he said it would not hurt the archeological site in his report. The organization is keeping on working on account of this report," Ersan said.
Ordu Metropolitan Mayor Enver Yılmaz, who has given 1 million Turkish Liras to the archeological unearthings, likewise censured the circumstance.
"We expanded the service's budgetary support from 50,000 liras to 1 million. Kybele turned into the train of the château. Finding a model in the passageway of the château demonstrates that more antiquities could be found inside. Somewhere in the range of 15,000 individuals went to the palace in two weeks. The quarry was given a permit before I took the post.
Half of this excellent complex has been harmed. We, as the senator's office, Culture and Tourism Ministry and the metropolitan region, protected nature and the manor amid the court procedure. This harm makes us exceptionally pitiful. We will settle it at the earliest opportunity," Yılmaz said.
