Alaaddin Hill, Selçuklu, Konya, Turkey 

Serene picnic locale on a historic site, with walking paths & benches amid gardens & trees.

The archaeological excavations carried out by Turkish Historical Society in 1941 showed that the first settlement on the hill goes back to 3000 BC, Early Bronze Age. Later on, the hill had also been used as a settlement area during Phrygian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman eras. The historically valuable hill is a recreation area today.
