This minaret is located adjacent to the kulliye ( a complex formed by numerous buildings ) which bears its name, having become the symbol of Antalya. Kulliye was made of seven different buildings:

Yivli Minare Mosque: This mosque bears a rectangular plan and has six domes. With multiple domes it belongs to the mosque class. It doesn’t host any single decorative element. Until the construction of the new museum building was completed, it hosted Antalya Museum of Archaeology.

Yivli Minare: It is situated to the east of the mosque and it is a building separate from the mosque. Its base has a square plan made of the cut stones. Its upper structure with an octagonal plan made of bricks. Its blue and dark blue mosaic-tile decorations attract attention. Its serefe ( balcony ) bears stalactites. It was erected between 1219 and 1236 in the period of Seljuk sultan Alaeddin I. Keykubat.

Medrese: A kind of school equivalent to today’s academies. It has four eyvans ( a covered room with three closed sides. Its front side is open to outside or to a courtyard ) and rectangular plan. As in many monuments of the Seljuks it has a stone carved monumental entry gate.

Atabey Medrese: It was constructed in 1239.

Mevlevihane ( a chamber of dervishes ): Mevlevihane comprises a single domed interior surrounded by the rooms and halls.

Turbes ( Tombs ): The first tomb belongs to Zincirkiran Mehmet Bey and dates back 1377. This is a vault in an octagonal plan. The second tomb which known as the tomb of Nigar Hanim is a small structure with a hexagonal plan.

Baths: It is very small building which is located next to Mevlevihane.
