On a recent visit to Mugla - unusual looking chimneys caught my eye

While wandering around the narrow and sheltered streets in Saburhane, I noticed the chimneys of the houses, which are built in such a way that they cannot be affected by the wind, whichever direction it is blowing from. These chimneys are the symbols of traditional Muğla houses. Most of the old houses have a small courtyard

The Seljuks captured the city in 1080 and in 1096 it was retaken by the Byzantines. In 1284 the Turkish Kingdom of Menteşeoğulları took over the city. Then the Ottomans seized the city in 1390. The oldest part of the city was a district where Greeks and Turks lived happily together.
