Cennet and Cehennem caves
MERSİNCennet and Cehennem (heaven and hell in English) are the names of two nature wonders consisting of big sinkholes. These sinkholes are among the touristic attractions of the city.
It is possible to reach the bottom of Cennet by a primitive staircase composed of 300 steps. At the bottom towards south, there is a smaller and 150 steps deeper cave. In this cave are the ruins of a monastery dedicated to Virgin Mary
Cennet and Cehennem are situated next to each other. Cehennem is a deeper sinkhole. Moreover, the upper edge of its opening is concave. So, it is impossible to reach the bottom of Cehennem.
