Niğde’nin İngilizce Tanıtımı

Lying on a plateau embellished by volcanic peaks is this city of Central Anatolian Region, which was called “Nahita” in the Hittite period.  Since its foundation, it has been a commercial center, standing on the ancient trade route between Anatolia and the Mediterranean.
Much later, the land was taken over by the Seljuks, who filled the city with many works, presenting the exquisite Seljuk artistic and architectural styles. One of the important remains from those years is the Alaeddin Mosque, which is really the most beautiful monument in Nigde, with its wonderful stonework over the ornate portal. From an inscription found here, this elegant building is understood to have been constructed in 1203, and was later restored during the reign of Alaeddin Keykubat.  DEVAMI
