This is the Mausoleum of Zincir Kıran Mehmet Bey, who reigned during a period known as that of the Beyliks (Ottoman Princes’ Period). The inscription above the entrance states it was constructed in 1377 by Mehmet Bey, grandson of an Antalya Commander, Hamitoğlu Yunus Bey. It is made of cut stone, in the Seljuk tradition. The roof from the outside is octagonal, inside it has a single cupola. Inside are three sarcophagi.
