Unusual minaret

Fluted minarets are not common. Very good-looking and harmonious structure. One of Antalya's landmarks.

The mosque's fluted minaret is a landmark and symbol of Antalya. It is very peculiar and isn't similar to other minarets, you always recognize him and will see him from everywhere. Your story about the city will be incomplete if you don't photograph Yivli Minaret.

It is a great archaelogical mosque, it was among the first few anatolian style doomed mosque. Very peaceful place , and a man made art to witness.

We spent part of a couple of days strolling around the old city. If you can see the minaret and are close, it is worth a walk by it, but I wouldn't go out of my way.

Yivli minaret was a symbol of history in Antalya, located in the historic place of Kaleici. I have visited once and its awesome that still preserved until today. Closed with the historic Mosque so when the Atzan has started, the moment could be absolutely different.

The architecture may be a little different from what you associate with a mosque, but it is well preserved and represents an era of Turkish history. The building is centrally located, and well worth a visit.
