BOĞAZKÖY SPHİNX

After Herakles, Boğazkoy Sphinx also returned home. 
The Boğazköy Sphinx was returned by Germany after being away for 94 years. The Sphinx is now on display at Boğazköy Museum.

The sphinx, which has undergone maintenance after it was brought to Turkey on July 28, has arrived in Hattuşa in the Central Anatolian province of Çorum’s Boğazköy district under tight security measures.
Another sphinx was unearthed along with the Boğazköy Sphinx during the excavations at the Yerkapı rampart in the ruins of Hattuşa in central Turkey. It was on display at the Istanbul Archaeology Museum and was brought to Boğazkale. Both sphinxes have been displayed in their home at a ceremony held at the end of November 2011 with the participation of Culture and Tourism Minister Ertuğrul Günay.
