Alanya tersanesi (shipyard) the five eyes

Sultan Aladdin Keykubat had started the shipyard construction to make his dream to become real and become "the sultan of two seas" two years after the construction of the tower. it is the first selcuk tersane in mediterania, which was before they built in the black sea area. At the north side of the shipyard there is an epigraph and at the left side of the epigraph there is a small mosque, at the right side there is a dormitory for the soldiers.
When you enter you can see the small holes, each one of them is 7.70 in width and 42.30 in length. These holes are tied to each other with arcs. One of these holes used to be a well. But now it is filled with waste.

This shipyard was active during the Ottoman period. But today it is abandoned to loneliness and it is trying to still stand.
