800 years old Sarihacilar Village located on the North EAST of Antalya grows more popular every year.
The historical road, 400 years old mosque and the Otoman
style houses attracts more tourists year by year.
Akseki Governor Mekan Ceviren says the Southern part of
the Silk Road lays between Akseki and Sarihacilar.
“ This village is under protection since 2007. We are
projecting an alternative tourism for Akseki. We are trying to inform people
about this ancient road. Tourists like to wlak on this road. We are planning to
extend this road to its original dimensions.”
US Professor Ronald Wade Kirchhoff was astonished with
what he has seen all around Akseki and Sarihacilar Village.
“ See, this ancient road, it is wonderful. I have seen so
many historical sites but not any one as impressing as this Village. Do not ask
me if I will come again; I do not even want to leave this village. Amazing.”
Tour guide Muhammet Güzel says the Village is located on
the Silk Road between Alanya and Konya. “ The nunber of tourists visiting our
village is increasing every year. 15 thousand tourists visited our village in
the first half of this year.”
“ Sarihacilar dates back to 1300 when Saljuks were in
power. Our village is a Moslem Turkmen settlement since then. The ministry has
listed our village among those to be restorated in 2000. Since then 10 old
houses were restorated. 3 restorations are in process. We invite tourists to
come and see the real history of Anatolia.”
