Kaleici / Antalya

Kaleiçi, the harbor which the city walls enclose is the oldest part of the city. In Kaleiçi, Yivli Minare, Kesik Minare and historic houses are to be found. In Kaleiçi, there is traditional Turkish architecture which strives for harmony with the nature.

The Kesik Minare (Broken Minaret) standing in the streets of Kaleiçi (Old Antalya) in Turkey was originally built as a Roman temple in the 2nd century AD. In the 600s, it was converted into a Byzantine church in honor of the Virgin Mary, but it was heavily damaged in the 700s during the Arab invasions. In the 900s it was repaired again. The church was converted into a mosque when the Great Seljuq Empire acquired Antalya. It was then when the actual minaret was added. In 1361 - when the crusader king of Cyprus took Antalya from the Seljuks - it became a church again, only to become reconverted into a mosque during the rule of Sehzade Korkut. The temple turned church turned mosque was destroyed in a fire of 1846, but the minaret survived, as the Kesik Minare.
