Gündoğmuş

Gündoğmuş, 07860 Gündoğmuş/Antalya, Türkiye

Go!

Gündoğmuş District, on the eastern part of the Gulf of Antalya, lies in the Taurus Mountains and on the same latitude as Akseki and İbradı. The large part of Gündoğmuş was located in the region of Isauria in ancient times. Alanya was a centre of piracy and the immense wealth gained from the loot was also transferred to the interior regions of Anatolia through idle roads.

Gündoğmuş is a town and remote district of Antalya Province in the Mediterranean region of Turkey, 182 km from the city of Antalya, off the road from Akseki to Manavgat. The town was previously a village named Eksere in the district of Akseki and was renamed Gündoğmuş in 1936.

Gündoğmus lies outside the main trade routes and the road connecting the coast to Gündoğmuşends here. This is the main reason why the district has remained relatively isolated, but has managed to preserve its traditional lifestyle. Though the least known region of Antalya, it is very rich in butlarch, oak and cedar trees. A large part of this district is covered by forests consisting of these tree species. Gündoğmuş, with its great variety of endemic plants, imposing mountains, dramatic Alara Valley and unspoilt culture is ready to welcome you.

Gündoğmuş stands in the foothills of the mountain Geyik Dağı, in the western Taurus Mountains. The mountainside is forested and the districted is split by the Alara River. The district has a warm Mediterranean climate with coolish winters due to the altitude.

Today this is an impoverished rural district as the nearby Mediterranean coast has drawn away successive generations in search of jobs in the tourist industry. The local economy depends on forestry, and money earned from seasonal jobs picking cotton or working in tourism in other parts of Turkey. There is no industry and little agriculture on this steep hillside, although grazing animals and beekeeping are important sources of income. Parts of the hillside are terraced for planting, but this is mainly vegetables for use at home.

Gündoğmuş is a small town with a high school and a boarding school for children from the most remote villages.

This area has been occupied since antiquity, and the site of the modern town of Gündoğmuş was settled by the ancient Romans.

Antique sites in the district include the town of Kazayir (near Taşahır on the main road to Antalya); the ruins of Kese near the village of Senir; the ruins of Gedfi 11 km south of the town of Gündoğmuş; the ruins on Sinek Mountain, 15 km (9 mi) east of Gundogmus, near the village of Pembelik; and many more.

The town of Gündoğmuş itself has the Ottoman Empire period mosque dedicated to Cem Sultan, an Ottoman prince who was at one time governor of this area.

And of course the area provides many opportunities for climbing, mountain walking and picnics in the forest.
