Is it because it has a bunch of tall, penis-shaped monuments?

Lol, no actually it is because it's a valley of giant penises

but maybe your theory is proved right these days

Nature has a wonderful sense of humor They were actually created by vulcanic ashes, on top of which a lava stream flowed. Because the ashes erode more quickly than the lava, shapes like this came out.

Its amazing that they are naturally occurring phenomena. They are certainly odd, stranger than the hoodoos at Bryce (though I prefer the colors at Bryce better).

yes, they're located in Cappadocia, central Turkey.

The area is filled with strange geological structures, and with nice evening/morning light it is a photographers dream

Check out this pano to get an idea of what I mean: http://tdn9.be/photo/Turkey06/CappadociaPano.mov
