According to the Associated Press, the mystery structure was found by a farmer on February 5 at the UNESCO World Heritage site named Gobekli Tepe in Sanliurfa province.

As per the report, the structure was 3 meters tall and was inscribed with an old Turkic script that reads “Look at the sky, see the moon.”
