The Kesik Minare (Broken Minaret) standing in the streets of Kaleiçi (Old Antalya) in Turkey was originally built as a Roman temple in the 2nd century AD. In the 7th century, it was converted into a Byzantine church in honor of the Virgin Mary, but it was heavily damaged in the 8th century during the Arab invasions. In the 10th century it was repaired again. The church was converted into a mosque when the Sultanate of Rum acquired Antalya. It was then when the actual minaret was added. In 1361 – when the crusader king of Cyprus took Antalya from the Seljuks – it became a church again, only to become reconverted into a mosque during the rule of Sehzade Korkut. The temple turned church turned mosque was destroyed in a fire of 1846, but the minaret survived, as the Kesik Minare.

Hıdırlık Tower & Park_001 Kaleici,Antalya,TURKEY 2009 © Levent ŞEN

Hıdırlık Tower (Turkish: Hıdırlık Kulesi) is a landmark tower of tawny stone in Antalya, Turkey, where Kaleiçi meets Karaalioglu Park. It is believed that the ruling Roman Empire built this in the second century CE on a square plan. The same century, it was turned into circular tower.

It has since been used as a fortification or a lighthouse.[1]

The tower is situated at the southern side of the place, where the land walls of the city join the sea walls. The 14 metres (46 ft) high structure consists a circular tower rising on a quadratic pedestal. The tower’s gate at the eastern side leads to a small room, from where a narrow staircase goes up. There are signs of restoration work on the upper part done in the Seljuk and Ottoman eras.
