Thermi

It's here 

This region took its name from the thermal springs that have been bubbled out of the ground here for centuries.

The Turks called it Sarlitza, from sari, meaning yellow, and litza, meaning curative thermal water, or hot-spring.

It was called this because of the dark yellow color that the water leaves on the tanks and channels. Archeological finds show that Artemis, the supervisor of healing waters, was worshipped here.
