Reading list | Denizli

A prosperous regional capital with a population of around half a million, Denizli is known for its textiles and its breed of cockerels with distinctive crows and very sharp claws. It lies above the Büyük Menderes valley on an historical trade route, and the 13th-century Seljuk caravanserais between here and Dogubeyazit on the Georgian border are on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List. The one at Akhan, just east of the town, is particularly impressive. Almost unknown to anyone, bar local scholars, are Denizli's magnificently painted village mosques, featured in Cornucopia 48.
