Ancient kings and kingdoms: speechless in Nimrud Dag

October 23, 2017

Travelling and shooting for the virtual museum dedicated Alexander the Great and his legacy, a dramatic sunrise found our team amazed and speechless in the ancient site on Nimrud Dag (mount Nemrud) at the ancient kingdom of Kommagene, now declared a protected national park.

Crowning one of the highest peaks of the Taurus mountain range located in south-east Turkey, Nimrud Dag emits a scent of mystical distinctiveness, evident in harsh landscapes with monumental architectural and sculptural structures.

The kingdom it was founded during the 1st century BC and flourished amongst a avariety of cultural traditions, mainly by the fusion of Greek and Persian deities and religious rituals.

Nimrud Dag is a unique artistic achievement of the hellenistic period that expresses an outstanding universal value.
