The Alaaddin Mosque or Yivli Minare Mosque (literally: "Fluted Minaret" Mosque), commonly also called Ulu Mosque (Turkish: Ulu Cami, "Grand Mosque") in Antalya is a historical mosque built by the Anatolian Seljuk Sultan Alaaddin Keykubad I. It is part of a külliye (complex of structures) which includes the Gıyaseddin Keyhüsrev Medrese, Seljuk and Dervish lodge, and the vaults of Zincirkıran and Nigar Hatun. The mosque is located in Kaleiçi (the old town centre) along Cumhuriyet Caddesi, next to Kalekapısı Meydanı. The mosque's fluted minaret called the Yivli Minare, which is decorated with dark blue tiles, is a landmark and symbol of the city. In 2016 it was inscribed in the Tentative list of World Heritage Sites in Turkey.
The mosque was first built in 1230 and fully reconstructed for the second time in 1373. The minaret is 38 metres (125 ft) high and free-standing, built on a square stone base, with eight fluted sections and has 90 steps to the top.

It is one of the most important places in old town, Yivli Minaret is famous for it is unusual form and was build in 1219-38 during Seljuk era. The Mosque was constructed in 1372-73 and is one of the oldest multi-domed mosques in Anatolia. There are other places just next to them which are interesting to see while you are in Old town. Минарет Ивли и соседняя Мечеть одни из самых ярких памятников архитектуры периода Сельджуков, обязательно посмотрите их во время прогулки по старому городу.

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
