Save the Legacy

Southern Türkiye is abundant in richly textured monuments and multicultural traditions. It houses the oldest known life-sized human sculpture and Early Neolithic structures thought to be the world’s first temple. This region is the “cradle of human civilization,” containing the birth place of prophets of three world religions – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam – whose adherents have lived in coexistence for centuries. And now the rich cultural heritage that has defined this region is at risk and needs our urgent protection.
