The oldest stone statues in the world left by humankind more than 10,000 years ago have been found in eastern Turkey.
Speaking of ancient ruins, the Great Pyramid of Giza and Stonehenge are famous. Writer Sean Thomas reports that several statues were found in eastern Turkey, allegedly made between 11,000 and 13,000 years ago, long before the pyramids and Stonehenge.

The ancient ruins reported by Thomas were excavated in Sanliurfa province in eastern Turkey and are named 'Karahan Tepe'. One of the most striking excavations in Karahan Tepe is a male genital-shaped stone pillar with a height of 8 feet.
According to Thomas, Karahan Tepe is estimated to be an archaeological site from 11,000 to 13,000 years ago. It is much older than the Great Pyramid of Giza, which is believed to have been built 4000-5000 years ago, and is considered to be the oldest stone building site in the world.
In addition to Karahan Tepe, there is an archaeological site ' Göbeklitepe ' that has been excavated since 1994 in Sanliurfa Province. It is shown to be a built ruin. Among the artifacts excavated from Gobeklitepe, there is a characteristic 'stone statue of a man who protects his crotch with six fingers'.
In addition, in the village around the archaeological site 'Tas Tepeler' near Karahan Tepe, there are relief statues of poses that protect the crotch as well as the stone statues excavated at Gobeklitepe. From these things, Thomas speculates that it is strongly related to Gobeklitepe, Karahan Tepe, and Tas Tepeler.
