Göbekli Tepe is an archaeological site at the top of a mountain ridge in the Southeastern Anatolia Region of Turkey. The tell has a height of 15 m (49 ft) and is about 300 m (984 ft) in diameter. It is estimated to be older than Stonehenge by 6500 years.

When excavation started at Gobekli Tepe in 1994, archaeologists were sure it was a temple and largely uninhabited.

Surprisingly it was intentionally buried under thousands of tonnes of soil and only a small amount of the 20-acre area has been excavated since its discovery.

The site was put up long before humans mastered language or skills like pottery or metal work, making it one of the true wonders of the world pre-dating any previously discovered religious site by 1,000 years.
