Fluted Minaret Mosque

By now I have so many pictures of this Antalya landmark I give it a gallery of its own.

The Yivli (Fluted) minaret Mosque. According to the inscription at the entrance it was built in 1373 by Mehmet Bey, grandson of Yunus Bey of the Hamitoğlu clan. Covered by six domes it is an early example of multi-domed Anatolian mosques. Inside one can see part of a drainage system. People have asked me "what does a mosque need a draining system for?" and though I think any building does well with good drainage, I do not know the answer to this precise question. It may even belong to an older building on the same spot.

Its minaret is the Antalya landmark. Note however that the minaret is older than this mosque.
