The Yivli Minaret Mosque, also known as ‘Antalya Ulu Camii,’ is a historical mosque situated in the old town center of Antalya, Kaleici. It stands as one of the city’s earliest Islamic structures. The mosque is distinguished by its fluted minaret, adorned with dark blue tiles, which serves as a prominent landmark and symbol of Antalya. Constructed in 1230 and fully reconstructed in 1373, the minaret rises to a height of 38 meters, resting on a square stone base. It features eight fluted sections and a staircase with 90 steps leading to the top.


The restoration design was undertaken by architect Nejat Uregen. As part of the restoration project tendered by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Prota provided consultancy services, retrofitting and restoration design services, seismic assessment, and in-situ drawings for the Yivli Minaret Mosque
