PERGAMONBergama is one of Turkey's most important cultural treasures. Pergamon is the cute town of Bergen, home to the remains of the ancient city, the centuries-old center of health, culture and art. The remains of the ancient city of Bergama (Pergamon), one of Turkey's most important cultural treasures, are located in the district of Bergama, 29 kilometers east of the Dikili coast. The settlement is the point where the Kestel tea joins by carrying the waters of Bakırçay and the Deer Mountain to the North. The fertile soil carried by Bakırçay forms the Bakırçay Plain, where valuable products such as cotton, tobacco, grapes and olives are grown by Dikili. In the history of the city of Pergamon we see the traces of the classical East-West study of Anatolia throughout the ages. Persians, Syrians, Arabs and Turks from the East, Greeks from the West, Isparta and Romans to these lands. They fought against each other to become sovereign. Information about the establishment of the city is unclear. However, according to the myths about the city's take-up, the King of Teuthrania Grynos asks for help from Pergamon in a battle and gives the name Pergamon to one of the cities he set up after victory. However, the first records of the city are found in Anabasis (The Return of Ten Thousand) by Ancient writer and historian Ksenophon. Xenophon, Prince in power struggle against Persian King Artekserkses He had fought with Artekserkses by going to Mesopotamia with an army of ten thousand people consisting of Ispartians, who was beside Kyros. Supported by the Isparta army as reported by Xenophon. Although this war ended with a victory, Kyros died and the Isparta army returned through the Black Sea. According to the information given in this book, M.O. In 399, the houses of Xenophon Beragama and the Pergamon Kalesi are taken from the Persian satrapy Asidates. After this date, Pergamon became the scene of many wars and tactics between Persians and Western civilizations. Then important turning points were Alexander the Great of BC. In 334, the conquest of Calik with the Battle of Granikos, Lysimakhos of Thracian ruler BC. The importance of the city to bring the state treasure here in the 3rd century can be listed in Philetairos' Seleukos period, where he established an almost independent state and the subsequent Eumenes period. But the city's brightest episode is Eumenes II (197-19 BC). The Kingdom was bound to Rome by Attalos' will in 133. Bergama is one of the most important cities of the Asian Province during the Roman period. AKROPOLIS (Bergama) ANTIQUE CITY The acropolis is built on an extremely steep hill. Approximately 300 m. It climbs up this hill at the height of a climbing road. In the city settlement called the acropolis, the religious, official, social and commercial buildings are interwoven within a specific plan framework. The Bergama King's Palace is on top of the hill, which has been the place of the insurgency since the early ages. Five cisterns and an ammunition were located on this hill. Athena Temple is located in the lower part of the buildings. There is also a library and the Temple of Trajan. The terraces below it are carefully placed on the Zeus porch. One of the steepest theaters in the world is also here. At the bottom is the Gymnasion and Demeter Temple. Today's remains of PERGAMON include Acaropolis, a library of 200 thousand skulls, ten thousand theaters, palaces, Trajan Temple, Asklepion and Serapis temples. In IV. Asklepeion, founded in the 19th century, is the most important medical center and school of its time. The Acropolis, which contains important remains of the ancient city, means "Upper City". There are three separate settlements in the upper city on the acropolis hill. There are royal palaces, temples and water cisterns in the highest and sheltered place of the acropolis, where the elders of the city lived with the royal family. BERGAMA CHURCH: It is the only known kiln from the seven kings mentioned in the GOSPEL. The Bergamans called this church built with red bricks "RED HUNT". Hadrianus (117-138 BC) first performed for God named Serapis. The original name is "Serapien" which means "in the place, in the sky". It was later converted to a basilica. ATHENA TEMPLE: The Athena Temple, built on the terrace above the theater, measures 6x10 m. Column is a structure in the order of Dor. The west wing is partly at 1.20 m. It is protected to the height. The columns and architrave parts of the temple are still in the Berlin Museum. The fact that the most important temple of the city belongs to the goddess Athena is an established tradition of Western Anatolia as seen in İzmir, Miletus, Eriythrai, Foça and Assos. ALLIANO: In 1998, 18 km north-east of Bergama, a new cult center was unearthed in the center of the Paşa Ilıcası. But the problem is this: This cult center is located within the water collection area of Yortanlı Dam, which started its construction in 1993. The new cult center emerged is a new Asklepion dedicated to the health god Asklepios. Allianoi will be under 17 meters of water when the dam's water-holding process begins, and over time it will be covered with mud and slime. An initiative called Allionai Volunteers proposes an alternative project for the emancipation of this important history heritage.

The works are in Berlin Museum. THEATER: The Bergama Theater is built on a steep slope and is one of the most beautiful architectural monuments of the Hellenistic period.

The museum exhibits archeological artifacts dating from the Early Bronze Age to the Byzantine Period. Among the finds from ancient settlements in the vicinity are the examples of the Pergamon sculpture school, the Myrina terracottales which were found in the Archaic period from Pitane and Gryneion. Temple of Dionysus: Bergamas built this eye-catching temple in a special way to the north of the 250-meter theater terrace, rather than the whole trip. The temple is very well preserved along with the altar, and it is a prolly plant in the Ion order rising on a podium with a rich profile. This work influenced European Baroque architecture as well as the understanding of Roman art, as a result of taking a place at the end of a long way and collecting all the eyes on it.

In the reliefs on either side of the altar are depictions of the battle of the gods with the gods and the legendary foundation of Bergama.
