Ulu Cami or the Grand Mosque in Antalya, likewise known as Yivli Minare Camii (Fluted Minaret Mosque) or Alaaddin Camii, is a verifiable mosque constructed by Anatolian Seljuk Sultan Alaaddin Keykubad I. This is the division of a külliye (which stands for “unpredictable of structures”) which incorporates the Seljuk and Dervish lodge, Gayaseddin Keyhusrev Medrese, and Nigar Hatun and the vaults of Zincirkiran. The mosque is spotted in Kaleiçi (the old town focus) along Cumhuriyet Caddesi, alongside Kalekapisi Meydani. The mosque's fluted minaret is called the Yivli Minare, which is enlivened with dim blue tiles, and is a historic point and image of the city. The minaret is 38 metres high, which is based upon a square stone platform, with eight fluted areas and has 90 steps to the top. The definitive mosque was obliterated in the fourteenth century and another mosque was constructed which, with its six arches, is one of the most senior illustrations of multi-arch development in Anatolia. It is arranged to the east of the mosque and it is a building differentiated from the mosque. Its base has a square arrangement made of the cut stones. Its upper structure comprises of an octagonal arrangement made of blocks. Its blue and dim blue mosaic-tile adornments draw appreciations. Its serefe or gallery bears stalactites.
Today the building also houses the Antalya Ethnographic Museum and holds clothes, kitchen utensils, weaving, embroidered works of art and looms, socks, sacks, kilims, decorations, and roaming tents. It was opened to people in 1974.

Nice little old historic mosque in the centre of the old town with an unusual minaret. Beware regarding appropriate dress, ie no shorts for male or female. So I couldn't go inside which was a shame. The did have a mini exhibit outside about the basic tenants of Islam which was very interesting
Beautiful old mosque in the heart of Antalya. It has excavation in the middle of it covered with glass.
Gorgeous old mosque that has an unusual minaret.
A must see when on the old town.
Mar sha Allah beautifull masjid
