    Myra's tombs

    The base of the unique necropolis in Myra it was a Lycian custom to bury the dead people high up because they believed that in this way they were more easily transported to heaven.

    The funeral monuments were built isolatedly or cut out of the rock-facea and some of the facades have flat or sloping roofs supported by pillars, suggesting that they are copied from wooden temples.
