Thursday, August 21, 2014, 7:42 PM - Pamukkale, which translates to "cotton castle" in Turkish, is a natural site containing hot springs and travertine terraces in southwestern Turkey.

Located in an area that has a temperate climate for most of the year, Pamukkale is a huge tourist draw that has been attracting crowds for thousands of years.

There are seventeen hot springs in the area with pools that range in temperature from 35°C to 100 degrees Celsius. The hot springs are the result of volcanic activity taking place under the ground.

The area was made a World Heritage Site in 1988.
