Yazilikaya Hittite Rock Sanctuary, Overview of Chamber B

The Yazilikaya Hittite sanctuary near Hattusa was made of two rock chambers, later labelled Chamber A and Chamber B by archaeologists. The walls of each chamber were covered with the richest and most striking samples of Hittite relief art. They featured gods and goddesses and the figures of the Great King Tudhaliya IV (ca. 1237 – 1209 BCE).
