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.

There is ancient drain pipe exposed and preserved under glass inside of the mosque. Wear modest clothes. Scarves are available at the entrannce. The small bazaar housed in the madrassa is worth a look. It has some good quality souveneirs for... More
