    Alarahan is about 20 km from Konakli, touristic but interesting antique city from abour 1231 ac.
    You can buy som Pommegranatejuice which is delicious! There are some people who sells pictures of you and some camels if you want.

    Text below is taken from the website.. the pictures are from me:-)

    The Caravanserai Alarahan, being built in the middle ages, today can be seen as a combination between being a cultural monument and a modern meeting point for visitors. After finishing half of the way between Manavgat and Alanya on the highway you may find the small traffic sign directing you to Alarahan. If you are guest in one of the modern hotels or clubs next to Alarapark region or just a passing traveler, present yourself a small gift: Take a short break at the Alarahan.

    The symbol´s of Alarahan
    Next to and at the caravansary you may allways find these three symbols:
    the head of a lion as a symbol for power, strenght and luck for the travellers spending the night over here
    the Mukarnas, 40 triangles crossing into each other as a symbol for protection against melices of all kinds
    and the signs and symbols of the stonecutter for endless life. The stonecutters believed, that a building will last forever because of these signs and that they always can follow life in the caravansary because of their symbols
