Side's Episcopal palace

Episcopal palace
A notice indicates “Side had a glorious period in the Early Christianity when it was declared the foremost Episcopal Center in Pamphylia. The colonnaded street that starts from the southeast of the city gate continues towards the east to an episcopal palace and basilica. Built in the 5th-6th century, the complex surrounding a central basilica contains a baptistery, private chapel and private chambers of the bishop and a trikonkhos (clover shaped) building. Very few examples of Episcopal palaces and basilicas have survived from antiquity, the one in Side is an important and a very well preserved one among these”.
One room held some very well carved pieces of (what may be) column-decoration or doorframes.
The contours of the episcopal palace were hard to recognize, I may have included some adjacent buildings or, just as probable, left out some buildings that belonged in this gallery. Some guards could not help me either, they disagreed about the circumference.
