Kesik Minaret Mosque

Kesik Minaret Mosque, also Korkut Mosque, is an old mosque located in Kaleiçi in (Old Antalya) in southern Turkey. The mosque was originally a Roman temple dating back to the 2nd century AD, which was converted into a church during the Byzantine era. In the 13th century AD, during the Seljuk era, the church was converted into a mosque and a minaret was built. In 1361 AD, after the Crusaders seized Antalya, they re-converted the mosque into a church, where it remained until the Ottoman era, when it was converted again into a mosque. In 1800 the building was damaged and was completely restored in 2019.
