Oren Keramos Ancient City

Oren Keramos Ancient City
Keramos was once known as Gereme; it is located on the Gulf of Gokova , is 45km from Bodrum and 50km from Milas .  

Oren

The coastline and sandy beach are very beautiful and the waterfront has small hotels, B&B’s and 2-storey houses with lovely pretty gardens.

Getting to Oren

You reach Oren via the village of Gokova / Akyaka and in between here are the ruins of the ancient city of Keramos, once a member of the Kryasor Union.  

Ker Amos Ancient City

In Hellenistic times it was ruled by Rhodes and during that time signed a loyalty agreement with its neighbours Stratonikeia . In 129 BC it was part of the Roman state of Lesser Asia after which it went on to lose its importance.  

On the Mesekaya Mountains there are ruins of city walls, with the lower parts having rows of polygon type stones and the upper parts using straight cut stones, and in the region of Bakicak there is a stone terrace with two significant temples that measure an impressive 25m in height.  

There is also a building called Kursunluyapi (Building with Lead) so named as lead was used to bond the stones, and original well preserved and beautifully structured terrace walls in the south and west but the eastern side are destroyed.

Corinthian and Ionic styled buildings are at the level ground of the terrace and the temple area is thought to have been dedicated to Zeus Krysaoreus.  
The Akyapi (White Building) inside the town is a large complex constructed in Roman times and if you visit this site via the Gokova road the aqueduct can be seen just behind the Mesekaya Mountains.
