VALLEYS TO VISIT IN CAPPADOCIA
Many years ago, what we now call Love Valley was actually a village. There were ten dynasties living in this village. One day, a fight broke out between the two families living in the village, and because of the fight, the village was divided into two and people did not talk to each other. One day, two villagers who complained about the situation decided to take and introduce a young man from both sides who are hostile to each other. The young people also fell in love as soon as they saw each other. The quarrelsome villagers, who understood the situation, did their best to separate the young people, but they could not succeed. Finally, they decided to get the young people married. Time passed, the couple had a child. However, even this situation was not enough to reconcile the quarreling families. Finally, they killed the boy. The poor girl could not stand her husband's death and committed suicide. It is said that after the death of the two lovers, God rained stones to punish the people living in the village. These stones kill anyone who opposes the reunion of the youth. Rumor has it that the spirits of the couple often visited this area and talked to the children.
