THE WOLFE EXPEDITION
Kara Baulo is situated on the western edge of Zengi Ovasii, and
we descend sharply about south for three-quarters of an hour, when
we find ourselves in a little valley or rather depression in the moun-
tains. At this point I found a ruined temple. After the destruction
of the temple it was converted into a house by the natives. The walls
were rebuilt with stone debris and fragments of tiles from the roofing
of the temple filled into the interstices. Lime mortar was used in this
rebuilding ; the walls of the rebuilding partly still stand. But the house,
or maybe church, has been deserted for centuries, for it is not only
surrounded on all sides by a dense forest, but a large pine now stands
proudly inside the temple, not to mention small oaks and brushwood.
From here we traverse the little valley, which is cultivated in spots,
and then cross a ridge to Baulo, the residence of a Mttdir [see Ritter,
Klein-Asien, II. p. 572 and 574]. Baulo is situated on the moun-
tain side, in the midst of delightful gardens. Below the village to the
southwest is a great sink or loop in the mountains, the land of which
is very fertile. The water goes out by Baulo Deresi to Kodja Su.
