But what’s special with the full term composed of these two words. Actually Pamukkale is a place in Turkey located in the Denizli Province in the Southwestern region of Turkey. It is the city with hot springs and heavy resources of calcium carbonates. The combination of mineral springs and calcium carbonates produce sedimentary stone known as Travertine.
