It is aimed that the remains of different cultural periods in the archaeological area will continue to exist without further destruction, approximately 1200 quality stones found in the area will be cataloged and exhibited around the building, and the closed space will be restored with its last function recorded as the Şehzade Korkut Mosque.

An astonishing feature of the city is that three quarters of it is the remains of the necropolis, which are extraordinarily ornate monumental tombs.
Lifestyle : There is a legacy of both lifestyles that have been floating around for centuries in Antalya and its surroundings. When the Turks first came here, they immediately followed the settled order; They established villages, towns and cities. A part of the population, on the other hand, continued the nomadic life as before the Turks came to Anatolia. According to this lifestyle, which means semi-settled, there are at least 15-20 families related to each other, sometimes hundreds of families; They lived in hairy tents, went up to the mountains in the summer, and went down to the warm plains called winter quarters in the winter. They raised animals such as camels and sheep, and made a living by exchanging or selling the products they produced with the products of the settled people. They produced meat, milk, oil, and weaving hair tents and rugs with natural madder. There were even those who planted grains and vegetables in narrow areas in the winter quarters. There were even large groups of nomads (tribes, tribes) raising horses for the Ottoman army.
Turkish rugs, which adorn the most important museums of Europe today, are the handiwork of these people. A very large part of today's folk music culture is inherited from nomads. The greatest poets of Turkish folk poetry and music such as Karacaoğlan and Dadaloğlu are the representatives of this culture. While those who have lived a settled life in rural villages for a long time describe themselves with terms such as "native, peasant", if you go to a village where the nomads have settled collectively, they say "This is the village of Yörük". You can hear such descriptions in almost all parts of Turkey. However, although people emphasize this ancient life difference in this way, they all have the same root and are Turkish. Aslı, they do not look at each other differently and see this as a wealth.
Today, Turkey is one of the countries that best adapts to contemporary modern life and uses technology in the best way. But today, there are a few small nomadic groups that have both nostalgic and cultural value and have continued their lives for thousands of years. Their number does not exceed a few hundred individuals. Sadly, only camels remained from that way of life. If you go, you will see decorated camels carrying tourists with bells and bells in Belek, Manavgat and Alanya during the summer months. These camels are a souvenir from those days. You will also see Yoruk tents serving local and foreign tourists in Kemer and on the Antalya Kumluca road. In these tents, which look like a semi-museum, you can eat ayran and pancakes unique to the Yoruks. Even today, the local people of Antalya go to plateaus such as Gömbe, Sütlegen and Alanya when they have the opportunity. This tradition is an ancestral memory. In some districts such as Alanya, you will see that the snow stored in the wells of the Taurus Mountains in winter is brought to the district center in August, turned into sherbet and sold by peddlers. Again, this is just one of the old traditions of the nomads.
Local Dishes: The basis of the diet of the nomads is determined by the foods obtained from livestock and wheat. Although a small amount of fresh vegetables are produced on the coastline, wheat and dried vegetables gain weight as you go to the inner regions. It is possible to find all the world cuisines in Antalya in touristic hotels and restaurants. But local dishes unique to the region are: Fried hair, Tandoori kebab, Kölle (wheat, beans, chickpeas and broad beans), Tomato juice, Hibeş, Arapaşi.
Climate: In Antalya, where the Mediterranean climate is dominant, winters are mild and rainy, and summers are hot and dry.
Transportation: Transportation is provided by road, air and seaway. Antalya airport is open to international air traffic.
