The city was discovered beneath an old portion of Nevsihir where the state housing development agency was hoping to build a new housing project.

“We stopped the construction we were planning to do on these areas when an underground city was discovered,” Mehmet Ergün Turan, the head of the state housing development agency told Turkish newspaper Hurriyet Daily News, which reported that the new discovery is the largest that they have found in the region to date.

The city is believed to date back 5,000 years, though little else is known as researchers are likely going to launch into their analysis in the coming months.
