Ihlara (Kappadokia), Güzelyurt, Aksaray. October 2021.

The word Ihlara is a derivative of the Greek word Khliara, which means "warm", likely after a mineral water source in the village whose temperature is in the 22-30 Celsius range.

Ihlara lies in the southeast end of its namesake canyon, Ihlara Vadisi. The canyon used to be called Peristrama Vadisi, after Belisırma village, according to Umar.
