Alaaddin Hill is located in Karatay which is one of the central districts of our province. The hill is 450 x 350 meters tall and 20 meters high. It is one of the settlements between the prehistoric and historical periods.
The excavations carried out by the Turkish Historical Society in 1941 revealed that the first settlement on the hill started in the Early Bronze Age in 3000 BC. After this period, Phrygian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman periods continued to be used as a settlement. Today, besides its historical value, it is a promenade place. Alaaddin Mosque, one of the oldest Seljuk monuments, is located on the hill.
