At one time water enveloped Túrkeve, which lies on the right bank of Hortobágy – Berettyó – main channel, the beauty of which has been preserved a lot by the Körös-Maros National Park. This region is used to be called Hortobágy, because it resembles Hortobágy in several ways, too. Kunhalmok “Cumanian hillocks” can be seen at the boundary of the town, these strange man-made land elements are the “land pyramids” of the Carpathian basin. The at-one-time flooded land of Nagykunság is still full of the Cumanian hillocks nowadays. According to Illyés Gyula they are our “cathedrals”. Their name is convincing, since many of the Nagykunság hillocks had been built thousands of years before the arrival of the Cumanians. According to their characteristics, they were residential hills, burial grounds, guard- and border-hills.
