Situated in the outskirts of Denizli province, Colossae is one of the six great cities of Phrygia. It reached its wealthiest period under the Persian rule but lost its importance when Laodicea was founded.

The ruins belonging to the city of ancient Colossae are on the mound which is at the same time the acropolis, and also found in the surrounding territory. To the north of the mound are the rock-cut tombs, ranging in size from room-type to house-type.
