THE MARKET TOWN

The town of Mahmutlar is located 15 kilometres from the lively city of Alanya, its a lovely little place with green fields and veiws of the Taurus mountains in the background, its actually becoming very popular with the tourists buying property such as holiday homes and appartements, its a quiet town exept for tuesdays and saterdays when everything comes to life because of the local market, its a big one as well, prob the biggest for miles around, and thats the reason for our visit. Also near to Mahmutlar is one of the largest mosques in the district, its large domes and beautiful painting is superb (SEE PHOTO). It is very rare for tourists to enter a mosque like this but we had the oppertunity to go inside and take photos which made our day even better

    I was in Alanya but not in Mahmutlar. As a lover of Turkey I probably come back there. So, thanks for great findings - especially that beautiful mosque you were lucky to visit inside (rare in Turkey).

    Fascinating information and photographs for a rare look inside the mosque. I think the whole area including the market looks grand.

    You are a braver man than I to venture into the forbidden world of Markets!! I think I would have stayed with the beautiful mosque and that peaceful countryside!
