Burdur

Burdur
This capital provincial town is 50km southwest of Isparta.

Places to Visit in Burdur

Ulu Mosque

The only really impressive monument here is the Hamidoğlu dynasty 14th century Ulu Mosque which was unfortunately destroyed by an earthquake in 1914 and has been completely rebuilt.  

Burdur Museum

The town also has an excellent museum that exhibits artefacts found in nearby Sagal Assos and Kremna and is informative with good displays.  

Burdur Lake

The lake, Burdur Lake, is quite a distance from the town and is rather disappointing and dull and not very pleasant to swim in.  

Insuyu Cave and Buyuk Lake

A better attraction is the Insuyu Cave,
a 600m long cave and is 14km from the town.  The cave has lighting and footpaths and has a series of seven beautiful underwater lakes with the largest measuring 150m x 30m that reaches a seasonal depth of 15m and is known as Büyük or Large Lake.  It has warm water that is rich in minerals, is phosphorescent blue and believed to be therapeutic for diabetics.  Visitors should note that the lakes can dry up in late summer and the cave becomes rather less impressive.  

Transportation

The town’s main bus garage is a 20 minute walk from the centre where there are a few hotels and restaurants, and regular dolmuş minibuses run from Isparta to Burdur.
