A Man Discovers Ancient Secret While Doing Home Renovations

When the protagonist of this story decided to start a small DIY renovation project to add more space to his home, he wanted to make some extra space in his house. His first thought was to increase the size of the basement.

He had no idea what he was about to find once he started digging the walls of his basement. It was supposed that this was going to be a simple renovation project to add some space to the house that had been within the same family for several generations. And after all that time, the house was starting to feel cramped and uncomfortable.

Living on a low income, he didn’t have the money to hire a renovation company to do the job for him. His plan was relatively straightforward: he’d knock down some walls in the basement to make space for a new room.

What he never expected was how this small project was about to change history. He started digging through the stone walls to open up some space when an opening began to appear with every chip. He quickly went to believe that he was uncovering a secret room that was part of the house, but his thinking couldn’t have been more apart from the reality.

As he continued to dig through the stone wall, he felt a soft, fresh breeze of air, which could be trapped in there for hundreds of years. Once the opening in the wall was big enough for him to crawl in, he reached for a flashlight and decided to step into the darkness.

As the man took his first step into the dark hole, his mind raced with thoughts about what he would find. The space he entered was narrow and empty. Disappointed at his discovery, he decided to go deep into the crevice further down, scared to see anything dangerous.

Turkey’s home to a lot of venomous species of spiders, snakes, and scorpions, so his fears were justified. He decided to go forward in his exploration of the strange room. To his surprise, suddenly, the crevice abruptly transformed into a narrow hallway that led into a cavernous room. What had started as a DIY project quickly turned to be a huge discovery.

Some subterranean hideout was carved into the volcanic stone that rested beneath the house. There was no doubt the room was man-made. There was no way that this could have happened naturally.

The stone appeared as if it was cut by humans a long time ago and that it had been worn down to the point that all the surfaces were smooth. Anxious to explore his new finding, he forgot about time and continued to walk, even when the exit disappeared from sight. The man continued to explore the room, moving from one corner to the next and mentally mapping his surroundings so he could easily find the way back.

He found another opening directly opposed to the door that he had entered, which led to a second corridor wide enough for one person to pass through. Next, the corridor transformed into a stairwell.

The ceilings were very low, so he had to crouch to continue going forward. At this point, he was sure that this was not a secret storage space or some cave, so he decided it was time to make his way back home and call the Turkish Antiquities authorities to help him discover the truth behind this amazing discovery.

It wasn’t long before a team of experts were called to investigate the mysterious discovery the man had done in his basement. When they got there, they weren’t capable of imagining how big this discovery was.

They had just found the lost subterranean city of Derinkuyu, a mythical lost city like Atlantis or El Dorado. Furthermore, they discovered that the city consisted of two different parts: an underground city and another one above the surface. The underground facility served as a protective fortress for the inhabitants of the surface when war desolated the land.

The city was constructed during the Byzantine era. During these times, the Arab Byzantine wars raged for over 400 years, as the Byzantines were under constant attack by the Muslim Arab Empire.

With time, the Byzantines were slowly annexed to the Ottoman Empire in the 15th century, and underground cities like Derinkuyu were used to scrape the new Muslim rulers. There have been many theories about who were the ones responsible for building Derinkuyu. The most accepted approach is that it was built by the Phrygians during the 7th and 8th centuries.

As for the reason it was initially built, since the discovery back in 1963, many theories have arisen. Some say it was built as a shelter from natural disasters, while others claim that there’s evidence that suggests that the ancient city was built to hide from enemy invasions.

To this day, the identity of the man who made the discovery remains unknown. Yet now and then, a new entrance to the underground city appears, expanding its reach beneath the surface.

    You can see one of the reasons why Allah ar-Rahman arRaheem ordered women to cover their Aurah.
    You have voted for Hijab.
    Alhamdulillah Rabbil Alamiin always

    • ZULEYIS.

      April 3, 2022 at 5:38 pm

      She’s very wrong for saying Muslim women copy Christian women. Right from onset, Muslim women are the ones covering themselves with Hijabs. Sister Catherine, u got it wrong. Islam is a complete religion. A reasonable Muslim woman would never expose any part of her body. Rather, u’re the one copying Islamic dressing. It’s better for u to change to a complete faith, before it’s too late.
      Can u show us a place in your Bible where it is commanded that Christian women should use hijab?
      I’m sure, there is no such provision in your Bible, therefore, stop spreading fake information.

          Yes Hijab has been worn before Islam but not exactly as how Muslims water it and Islam recommend it for every believing women. In the Qur’an Allah says ”and warn the believing women to draw thier veils i.e Hijab all over their body

      You cannot why Allah ordered women to be wearing hijab. Sister You are on the right path.


        April 5, 2022 at 6:40 am

        True. The Israelites dressed like that. Muslims only copied from Christians. But most pastors say Christianity and worshipping God has nothing to do with dressing. It has!

        Hijab is a northern dress, to prevent dust, u can believe that the blinds are many in the north, so, lslam came from northerners, as Christianity come from Southerners, u can see Christian dress in suit, so don’t be deceive either by hijab nor suit, their foreign dressings, our own dress are buba and agbada. So understand from today,

      Dear Sister Catherine,
      See how pleased and satisfied you are with just a single practice of Islamic Etiquette that protects you and others that are in contact with you get saved from Allah punishment. Now imagine you enter wholeheartedly into Islam and immense benefits you and your people will get from Our Creator, Allah. Thanks for propagating our religion of Islam. I know sooner or later many Christian will join you across the Globe and with that Islamic etiquette of dressing will take over the Churches and obscene dresses that are noted and constantly seen in churches more than any social gathering will be a thing of the past. Islam is the solution and has solution to all problems.
      I congratulate for seeing the light of protection and wisdom from your Creator through the practice of just one Islamic etiquette.

    Sister you are the best. Beside, hijab is not a prerogative or exclusively preserved for Muslim. Its for both religion adherents.
    Both Muslims and Christian wear it in the northern part of Nigeria freely, not of compulsion.

      Madam, you could’ve dressed the way your faith asked you, Islam is a complete way of life, “….die not unless you’re a Muslim”…

        April 4, 2022 at 8:14 am

        Honestly speaking, you don’t need to wear hijab to cover yourself in as much as you are not a Muslim, please do not wear the hijab because that is our Muslim identity.

      • Olusoji

        April 5, 2022 at 1:50 pm

        Hijab just come to Nigeria by time Boko Haram arrived Nigeria.NNigeria.Nigeria Muslims have our way of dressing before hijab and it was very okay.
        By the time Boko Haram came to Nigeria, their intentions was to bring problem between Christian’s and Muslim but God disagreed.
        Not that they love Nigeria Muslims but in order to achieve their hiding agenda.
        Therefore I speak to Nigerians to let love one another and see each other as one family, that is the only way to conquer the evils agents brought to this country by the devil through some leaders.

      Islam is never and can never be a complete religion. Islam claimed to be promoting peace and love, that is not true. The most violent religion in the world today is Islam. Deadly set of people in the world, proclaiming to be fighting for their gods. There should be glint of peace in the without Islam as a religion. Calling a religion that is perfect in killing human being, raping and kidnapping all in the name of fight for their gods a complete religion. May God have mercy on Islamic world and bring His fullness of His knowledge here on earth.

      She should stop deceiving herself, wearing hijab for women is a commandment from God. So she is the one copying Muslims. Tell her to revert to Islam before it is too late because Islam is the true religion of God

        Why are we deceiving our selves. Christian or Muslim, ijhab or not. Religion is not the problem, we are just wicked people. Our leaders, are they not either Christian or Muslim and yet wehawe this kind of economy. Check Japan, they didn’t carry religion like this yet they have better economy. Who is deceiving who.

    If you say God told you to wear hijab ,which is a Muslim’s and in fact Holy Maryam ‘a (Mary Jesus’s mother s attire, ) Then God is simply telling you to be a Muslim as the only religion acceptable by him,
    There is no way around it . period

    • Ambassador

      April 3, 2022 at 9:35 am

      Hijab is a Jewish attire that is Jesus birth place that’s why Christians in the Bible makes use of it before the west introduces their own, just like today the has made people to think that Christianity is just come as you are! That what is necessary is your heart to God, they forget that what you Wear speaks who you are…

        April 3, 2022 at 3:53 pm

    Hijab was for Christians , they didn’t take it seriously and the Muslim took over it. So it’s for both religion.

    • Alhassan

      April 5, 2022 at 7:32 am

      If hijab is for both religion then practice it and inform your family, friends and those of the same faith do the same. Thanks

    God sent Adam, Noah, …. Christ to Muhammad peace be upon him with common massage that is to preach the oneness of God. The religioun of God is the same, the teaching are same, way of leaving, behaviors, mode of dressing are all the same. Madam and all those that listen to this accept Islam and become Muslim as the only way to salvation. Ooh God, via me witness that I have conveyed your massage

  11. Mercy

    April 3, 2022 at 7:45 am

    Many people don’t know that hijab is part of catholics ( sisters) dress. It is not what Allah commands but part of catholic dress, Mohamed copy it.

    • Emeka Ezeokoli

      April 4, 2022 at 2:33 pm

      Just like he copied the chaplet prayer [in addition to much of the Old Testament of the Bible] from his Roman Catholic wives numbering 9 out of a total of 27. I guess that plagiarism was during the first millennium not yet a literary offence!
      A former merchant, albeit intellectually endowed, was lucky that Khadijah, one of those 9 wives, was wealthy enough to fund his full-time writing career during which he discovered the “complete religion”. ‘Nuff said.

  12. Firdaus

    April 3, 2022 at 8:50 am

    April 3, 2022 at 12:40 pm

    There are people in these world that are inwardly fanatical. God is telling those who said they’re born again Christians that He will use Muslims mode of dressing to judge them,especially the women. Learn in time & respond wisely. You can’t be born again & be exposing your breast,shape & dressing seductively. Its an act of abomination. Even when the weather is hot,they still cover every part. But,worldly believers refused to copy same. Repent before its late to repent. A word is enough for the wise.

  17. Yahya Sabo Donga

    April 3, 2022 at 12:46 pm

    Sister G.O.mummy whether you like it or not,the veil , wimple or hijab are Muslims and Islam dress code.
    Stop being hypocritical, Jesus Christ was never a Christian but a Muslim.
    Christianity is fake.

    God almighty is the God of Abraham who is the father of Iail and Isaac, Abraham is the father of both of them God did not forsake ismals race he Godof the two lineage. The Jewish believers dress in hijab till today
    This is a confirmation that both religion are to bring is close to almighty God
    It is just a language difference and the significant facy that Jesus Christ came to die as a sacrifice for all mankind for the cleansing of sin. The Quran made it clear that every Muslim must believe in Jesus Christ has being sent by God. Really, there is sense in any form of fight over religion because God did not give us religion as a guarantee to make heaven rather He want us to live peacefully in love with our neighbours and renowns idol worshipping, occultism but worship God alone.

    • Jason

      April 4, 2022 at 8:39 am

      You are very correct my sister. Both lineage are from Father Abraham, in fulfilment of the prophecy. Quarelling about superiority of religion is pointless.

    Mind you Muslim never copy veil wearing form the christians, but commanded by God to do so. Mind your misleading utterance in the public and do critical research on religion for better understanding.

    April 4, 2022 at 3:45 am

    Sister Cate, please complete the process by becoming a full Muslim woman. Just imagine, no body would term you to be a Christian in such a beautiful Muslim dress. Please convert to Islam at once and continue to dress in such an amazing manner.

    I pray that Allah guides you to the right path as a great Muslim lady, ameen Ya Rabbi.

    Many Christians live in HYPOCRISY, that is why the book of revelation talks about the APOSTATE church.
    This woman in her speech adored muslims, saying that muslim women were told to wear hijab so not to seduce men. Now, who in earth amo6the two religions Islam a d Christianity ‘re 90% terrorists,? The answer is islamic countries.
    Who amongst the two religions of islam and Christianity ‘re ambitious of dominating the world with their religion by the use of FORCE? again, it’s muslims. Then I ask madam Kate or whatever she calls her name, where then is the holiness in islam you ‘re mounting about here?
    Your backside as you said is big, that is why you wear islamic hijab, veil, or stuffing coverings, if your claims is anything to ho bye, then, 50%of men who on daily bases sees women on the street, markets places and offices Yash would have been in hellfire by now.
    Secondly, before you realise you have huge backside, thousands of men who beholden you Yash would have a died and ‘re hellfire bound.
    Your face madam Kate ‘re not so attractive, neither your the color of your skin nor your facial build, none ‘re fascinating.
    If you ‘re a truly what you said your backside is, let’s see it, forget who goes to hell or heaven afterwards. Let the public be the ones to tell you to cover it because it’s too tempting.

    This way of dressing originated from the Israelites where Christianity came through Jesus our savior. The Islam claim of Abraham also made them copy that type of dressing.

    Worshipping and obeying ALMIGHTY GOD should not be a COMPETITION between Christianity and Islam, but rather doing the SIMPLE WILL of the CREATOR. Dressing to please GOD is not CULTURAL but any dressing that SATISFIES the REQUIREMENTS OF ALMIGHTY GOD.


    April 20, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Good day sister Catherine there are better ways you can dress modestly without attracting men so l would advise you to further seek God’s consent on how to please Him .

    Good evening all,

    Let us know that Islam is not a new religion after Christianity or Judaism or any other faith, rather Islam (Submitting to the will of Almighty) is the faith practice from Adam through Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Moses, John, Zachariah, Jesus Christ and Muhammad (peace be upon them all) as claimed in the Quran.

    In Islam, every prophet preached the same core beliefs, the Oneness of God, worshipping of that one God, avoidance of idolatry and sin, and the belief in the Day of Resurrection or the Day of Judgement and life after death. And these are the things taught by all the prophets of God From Adam to Muhammad (peace be upon them all). Prophets and messengers are believed to have been sent by God to different communities during different times in history.

    The Prophet Muhammad SAW said « The Prophets are like brothers of the same father but different mothers, their religion is the same and their laws differ. » [Narrated bay Al-Bukhâriyy]
    So Hijab is prescribed for all since time immemorial,

    Even Virgin Mary the Mother of Jesus picture has always been depicted with her hijab (arabic) or veil (english) defending in the choice of language you want use.

    I pray that Almighty God continue to open the eyes of our Christian sisters and brothers to understand that Muslims are not their enemy rather their closed relation in faith

    As a Christian surely dressing like a nun would be better? Many nuns wear full length garments with very full fabric which hides their body shape. I do not believe God spoke to you in regards to your clothing, maybe you had a dream? Also I doubt any men were driven to wrong thoughts by your looks and body because it ain’t all that is it? You are just looking got celebrity and fame otherwise no one would have heard about this, YOU put it in the public eye. Furthermore, men should exercise restraint over their thoughts so that women do not have to cover every inch of their bodies. You are not doing Christianity any favours wearing these clothes, buy a kaftan or dress as a nun, oh wait, then you wouldn’t be in the public eye. May God forgive you.
