The city was established in the 4th century BC and was an Episcopal centre in Byzantine
times. On the west side of the hills are ramparts dating from Hellenistic times and have towers, gates and roads to the city. On the north east side are ruins of houses and streets and on the west is a Selcuklu Mosque, Byzantine
church and cistern. On the southwest base of the hill is a theatre with a capacity for 8,000 with an odeon next to it.
This is located in the middle of a plain, 29km off the Antalya
highway, 5km from Eski Yoruk village, on a wide, shallow-shaped but steep hill, north east of Perge and 12km inland.
