The theatre stage in the ancient city of Hierapolis, Denizli, Turkey is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Hierapolis means “sacred city” in Greek. It was built in 190 BC. It came under the control of the Roman Empire and it was rebuilt in the Roman style after being destroyed by earthquakes . The death of Saint Phillippus, one of the apostles of Christ, lent the city a religious importance. It was delivered to Byzantium in 395 CE, and then came within the borders of the Seljuk Empire.

The stage has Baroque architectural characteristics. The ancient theater is found within the borders of the Hierapolis.
