Cehennem Cave

Cehennem Cave ;The cave is located at 63 km. southwest of Icel and 22 km. far from Silifke. It is at 75 meters east of Cennet Ponor.The cave has been formed as the result of the collusion of the ceiling because of the erosion of a creek passing under the ground in the Miocene period limestone layers. The cave with the dimensions of 50×75 m. is elliptical. It is steeper and narrower than the Cennet Ponor. The debris piled at the floor of the ponor because of the collusion of the ceiling descends with an approximate inclination of 30ºC from west to eastward.
