  The Grooved Minaret in Antalya
by Paul2001

Probably the most dominate man-made feature along Antalya's beautiful waterfront id the grooved minaret or Yivli Minare. This unusual minaret was created by the Seljuk sultan Alaeddin Keykubad in the 13th century. The building it is attacted to was originally a Byzantine church but was converted to a mosque and now is an art gallery.
