Lost in Labyrinth of Tophane

Tophane is one of district in Alanya. It is located on the peninsula where Alanya castle stands. 

I went to Tophane in the end of the spring this year. Although I live in Alanya since 2005 but this is the first time for me to have adventure in Tophane.

After excursion at citadel with my daughter, we decide to walk down to Tophane that located at the lower part of the peninsula. We went there to visit the old mosques that located in Tophane.

I didn't know that narrow streets in Tophane are look like the same one to each other. It's like a labyrinth. We got lost for few times in the mission to visit the mosques.

But finally we can visit Andızlı Mosque and Tahta Minareli Mosques after asking for directions to some people there.
