  On my way to the Holy Mountain of Midas Sehri

I shouted with joy. Above the village the Holy Mountain of Kybele with Her main shrine. Later people wrongly called it the "Midas" shrine. About Midas: LINK Gordion

The Kybele statue has been removed

Her symbol?

Phrygian inscriptions

Holy Mountains are often Table Mountains. Just like the Untersberg in Germany/Austria....

Typically, the top of the Holy Mountain is flat ("Table Mountain"). In the center there appears the main altar

Inscriptions in the altar

Symbol on top

Possibly a niche for a Kybele statue

Kybele: Mother of the Gods, the mountains and caves.....
