Old Masjid that retains its charm.

Very calm and peaceful inside. No crowds and easy access for any tourists. It is walking distance from the Town Center into Old Town.

Once I have prayer inside the Mosque, I found something different than any historic Mosque in the world because its authentic building and like any other Ottoman Mosque its has a beautiful minaret and little garden around.

One of the many minarets dotting the old city area. Kecik means broken. The minaret though broken is pretty good piece of architecture. There is a run down basilica next to it. Worth a look if you are passing by. There is no entrance fee. There are a few plaques explaining the history and construction.

This is another iconic and very ancient monument in Antalya with a lot of history behind it. You can visit by just walking by as many other monuments, however, we visited it in the e-bike tour we took around Antalya, in which the audio guide and in-person guide taught us about each of the monuments.

Interesting place to see and to be in front of. Originally built in 2nd century as Roman temple, then converted into Byzantine church. After that it was destroyed. Rebuilt as a mosque in 13th century, destroyed by crusades and turned up in the church. After that in mosque again and finally destroyed by fire. Broke minaret survive.

The remains of the Korkut (Kesik Minare) Cami make a fascinating stop on a walking tour of Antalya's old town. It makes a striking sight with its truncated minaret that stops you in your tracks. The history of the building is equally astonishing. The building was originally constructed as a Byzantine church in the 5th-6th century, standing on the foundations... More

You can't miss this stunted minaret and the ruins surrounding it if you walk through Antalya's old town. It is also called the Korkut Minaret and Mosque. There are extensive ruins around it but you can't get inside to fully explore them. The earlier remains are of a 2ndC Roman Temple. On top of this was built a Byzantine Church... More
