Mount Nemrut, is a 2134 meter tall mountain in eastern Turkey, near Malatya, Adıyaman, and Kahta. Nemrut Dağı is topped by a strange collection of huge statues put there around 62 BC by Antiochos I Theos of Commagene,a megalomanical king. They are supposed to represent the king and his relatives, the dieties of all the surrounding civilizations:Hercules,Zeus-Oromasdes,Ahura Mazda,Apollo-Mithras .
The kingdom fell soon after, and the site was completely forgetten. It was only rediscovered in the late 1800's when the Germans were surveying for a railroad they were building for Turkey. It's now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
You can visit Nemrut Dağı on trips out of Malatya and Kahta. You drive up the mountain in the day, visit the site in late afternoon and watch sunset, then retire to a hotel near the summit.
