Antalya march 2012 2808.jpg

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