The region between Kutahya, Afyonkarahisar and Eskisehir which is named as “Phrygia Epiktetus” (Little Phyrgia).
The region that was covered with lava and ash of Turkmen Mountain was filled with temples, alters, graves, houses and defend structures by carving and hewing by Phrygians between BC 900-600.
Phrygian Way is spread out over a wide area, thus better to explore by car, tour bus or bicycle. The starting point and route should be selected according to the city you’re departing from (map: bizevdeyokuz.com).
