Yivli Minaret is also known as Alaaddin or the Great Mosque, the symbol of the city of Antalya. The mosque was built in 1230 and completely renovated in 1373. The inscription on the minaret says that it was built by the Seljuk sultan Ala-ad-din Keykubad I. This is one of the earliest examples of Islamic architecture in Antalya. The minaret is visible from almost anywhere in the city, and has long been a symbol of the city of Antalya. Since its construction is like “cut” by bricks into separate layers and consists of eight semi-cylinders decorated with brick-tiled mosaic, the minaret is called “Yivli”, which means “Corrugated”. On the floor of the minaret you can see the words of Muhammad, derived from turquoise and blue colors. The entrance to the minaret is located on the north side of the base. The 90 steps of the spiral staircase, illuminated through slots in the walls of the minaret, lead to the balcony - Sherefe. In all likelihood, the original staircase consisted of 99 steps, each of which resembled 99 names of God to the muezzin.
