The Alaaddin Mosque or Yivli Minare Mosque (literally: "Fluted Minaret" Mosque), commonly also called Ulu Mosque (Turkish: Ulu Cami, "Grand Mosque") in Antalya is a historical mosque built by the Anatolian Seljuk Sultan Alaaddin Keykubad I. It is part of a külliye (complex of structures) which includes the Gıyaseddin Keyhüsrev Medrese, Seljuk and Dervish lodge, and the vaults of Zincirkıran and Nigar Hatun. The mosque is located in Kaleiçi (the old town centre) along Cumhuriyet Caddesi, next to Kalekapısı Meydanı. The mosque's fluted minaret called the Yivli Minare, which is decorated with dark blue tiles, is a landmark and symbol of the city. In 2016 it was inscribed in the Tentative list of World Heritage Sites in Turkey.

  • What a piece of architecture. The minar is breathtaking. Iconic! Do go early morning before everyone is up. :)
  • We ordered the duck too share only 3 pancakes each and the duck overcooked plus a chocolate taste sauce very strange taste, ask if any other sauce or dip said yes tomato sauce no duck sauce? We said we like some sweet potato fries these came in a flower pot this look good but a portion for £4 each no way. Sorry very disappointed, staff good and helpful would be nice if they all had a uniform as they look like they came from the pub / public area?? Anyway it's a nice feel to the restaurant but disappointed of the food.
