To the right: The Yivli (Fluted) minaret Mosque.
The fluted minaret and its mosque were built around 1230, during the reign of the Seljuk sultan Alaeddin Keykubat I (1220-1237); the original mosque was destroyed in the 14th century and replaced by a new one in 1373. With its six domes, this ‘Yivli Cami’ (also: Ulu Cami/Great Mosque) is one of the oldest examples of multi-dome (Islamic) construction in Anatolia.
