Pamukkale (a Cotton Castle) is famous for its hot calcium oxide-rich springs which for many hundreds of years formed the thickness of snow-white lime sediments on the Tavr rocky terraces. Falling down from the flat mountain top the mineral water streams created fantastical stages of white salt sparkling in the sun. These rocky terraces look like huge bathes. There are three kinds of thermal waters in the higher part of the city. Striped water of various hues with a temperature of over +40C falls down from the small hill. Another stream with grey waters and with a temperature of about +30C is able to cure people of many skin diseases. And the third is considered to have rejuvenation properties.
