The corridors are a good size in that one. I visited the underground cities in Capadocia in central Turkey about 16 years ago. The one that I was one went down more than twenty stories deep though they only had about half of that open to the public. There was one place that had an airshaft that you could drop down a lit taper and see how much further the city went. There was a second city about ten kilometers away but it wasn't open to the public. They also found a deep connecting tunnel, or they think it connected the two, it had caved in and they never bothered excavating it. Yup undergroud skyscrapers that kept the early Christians safe.
When the Moslems came raiding they would find crops but no people; I think the carved out cliff dwelling would have been started by then but they might have come later. The cities were big enough to hold quite a few thousand people but I forget the exact number. I spent all day exploring them and it was very cool.

Yep, it seems that in those times, they did these constructions underground here in AZ also, here the entrances are in the cliffs, and somehow got burried by large amounts of debris. The first one I found is way up and totaly exposed, but you would need climbing gear to get to it, the other entrance is 200ft below the first one, and was just uncovered last year in heavy rains. The artwork is anciant leading up to the location, and deplicts at least 7 religions, in monolithic carvings, you can even see the waterline that once was part of the inland sea. If I was rich, Id like to check those ones you been to, since they are letting the public into them. The ones I found here, I still havent got enough equipment to document the find, or explore them safly, but soon, the world will see whats here. :}

at 1.8 meters per story we must assume that they were midgets that built and inhabited the place eh? Have you been inside the ones you found yet bushman? I know that they dot the south west like swiss cheese and many are marked with symbols which are very, very, runic! ;) But then we know, from the so called 'Native Americans' that there were Iron Shirts already living here when they got here from the wars in South America. cf., "The Book of the Hopi" and others. thanks for the info...
