Two hills form the 37 ha site on the Southern Anatolian Plateau. The taller eastern mound contains eighteen levels of Neolithic occupation between 7400 BC and 6200 BC, including wall paintings, reliefs, sculptures and other symbolic and artistic features. The western mound shows the evolution of cultural practices in the Chalcolithic period, from 6200 BC to 5200 BC. Together they testify to the evolution of social organisation and cultural practices as humans adapted to a sedentary life.
