(Explore: 342 on Monday, July 21, 2008)

 

The ancient shipyard in Alanya, Turkey

The shipyard, consisting of five docks and constructed in 1226 by the Sultan Alaaddin Keykubat, is 56 metres long and 44 metres deep and is the only remaining shipyard from the Seljuks. The entrance to the shipyard is behind the Red Tower. The shipyard also contains offices and a little mosque located on the left of the entrance.

At night all these buildings are illuminated creating a fantastic sight.

The shipyard can be visited at closer quarters by renting a small fishing boat.
