    Earth Mother & Mother Goddesses

    Türkiye is the home of the earliest human farming settlements in the world. Early farmers worshipped a mother god, who they symbolically saw as a personified Earth giving them food. The earliest shrine of this Earth Mother is at Çatalhöyük. She was the major divinity for over 6,000 years and was worshipped under different names. Her earliest name is Kubaba. Sometimes she is Kybele, sometimes she appears in the form of Greek goddesses such as Artemis, Aphrodite, or Demeter. One of her most recent great shrines was the Temple of Artemis (Artemisium) in Ephesos, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
