Alaadin Mosque

On the web I found (on a site by Inzumi) the following description: "This nondescript mosque in the quiet part of the old city offers an unusual scenery. There is no dome, a wooden gallery can be found along the side wall running next to the wall, colorful glass decorates the windows. The mosque was built in 1834 originally a church of the back then very large Greek community of Antalya. Already during the pogroms of 1922 before the Greeks were finally expelled by the contracts of Lausanne in 1923, the church was turned into a mosque. The minaret was added in 1937. Slim pillars with Byzantine capitals underpin the wooden roof on the inside. The outer gallery is connected to an gallery on the inside. Turkish additions are the Mimber (pulpit) and the Kible (niche pointing to Mecca)." It is a lovely building. A man claimed he was employed there and forbade me to enter, my Turkish was strong enough to convince him I had every right to enter. If you run into him, ignore him and do take a look.
