Description of the village Gömürgen


Gömürgen lies inAnatolia, which is one of the oldest settlement areas of the world. Exact data for the establishment of the village are not well-known. It is assumed that between 1594 and 1644 seven Turkmeni emigrant families ofCentral Asiasettled in the environment and until to today are employed into sheep breeding.  


Gömürgen belongs to the district Akkışla, which belongs again to the provinceKayseri. It lies 6 kilometers far away from Akkışla and 86 kilometers fromKayseri. In the east and southeast is the Hınzır mountain and the village Ortaköy. Akkışla lies to the west of Gömürgen. South of Gömürgen, likewise associated with the district Akkisla, lies the district Uğurlu and the village Ganışeh.

Gömürgen, lies over 1400-1500m over the sea level and has a land climate. The vegetation reminds of a desert. The reason for it lies in the constant over feasting and the unusual high clearing of the ground around the country in order to convert to pastureland. This again is the reason for the erosion danger into and around Gömürgen.
