Mt. Hasan

Local nameHasan Dağı
LocationAksaray, Turkey

Mount Hasan is a volcano in Anatolia, Turkey. It has two summits, the 3,069 metres high eastern Small Hasan Dagi and the 3,253 metres high Big Hasan Dagi, and rises about 1 kilometre above the surrounding terrain. It consists of various volcanic deposits, including several calderas, and its activity has been related to the presence of several faults in the area and to regional tectonics.

Activity began in the Miocene and continued into the Holocene; a mural found in the archeological site of Çatalhöyük have been controversially interpreted as showing a volcanic eruption or even a primitive map. It was the second mountain from the south in the Byzantine beacon system used to warn the Byzantine capital of Constantinople of incursions during the Arab–Byzantine wars.
