Karakus Tumulus:
 
The tumulus of Karakus (or Eagle’s tumulus) is a large burial mound built by King Antiochus of Commagene for his wife and sister and his mother Isias.  Four pairs of columns – each at least 10 meters high – once stood at each compass point around the tumulus, surmounted by statues of an eagle, a lion, a bull and a Deixiosis of Antiochus (or Mithridates) shaking hands with Herakles. From Karakus tumulus, which is located some 20 Km after the Cendere Bridge in direction Adyiaman, one has a clear sight of Nemrut Dag some 50 or 60 Km away.
