Alanya History

The proof of Alanya's being a host to humanity since ancient times was found by Prof. Dr. Kilinc Kokten in 1957 in Kadiini Cave which is a bounder between Bademagaci Village and Oba Town. These proofs were human skeletons and fossils. When I took scientists from Hacettepe University to Kadiini Cave in 1993 they said these skeletons were analyzed in America and it's confirmed that even in Dark Age's people made some changes on skulls. If you want to visit this cave, using Cikcilli Hacibaba Street you go to Kadipinari Picnic. There you can have a rest, eat and drink something and then climb that steep slope. When you see the cave you may have a little trip to ancient times.

As an heir of a rich history Alanya thought sometimes to be a part of Cilicia and sometimes a part of Pamphylia. The father of histo ry, Herodotus said the following things about this region: "People living in this region moved and settled here after the Trojan War (B.C 1820) and some of the societies hosted these people." During the first half of B.C. 14th century Hittite Empire came to this region and killed 6 thousand people and annexed Cilicia and Pamphylia. The word Pamphylia means composed of various races, various kinds. Fruitfulness of our county's soils, thickness of our forests, and steep sides of Taurus Mountains which dike in front of the shoreline drew attention of passengers and made most of them to stay here.

Do you realize that this still goes on today? Currently, the number of people moved and settled down in Alanya from Europe is 5000-6000. Moreover Alanya Municipality has prepared a special graveyard for them. Alanya had 4 different names throughout its history. Let's go through these names:
