At first glance Gökçetoprak looks like a sleepy farming village somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Today it is, but it must have experienced other times in its three thousand year history. South of the village you will find a lonely rock with a late Hittite inscription from the 8th century B.C. in a cliff drop. In the village itself there is a rock relief of Zeus Stratios, whose cult was widespread in Greek-Roman times.
