Muratpaşa, with an area of 92 square kilometers, has an area of 8 thousand 804 hectares. With 20 kilometers of coastline, Muratpaşa is located in the south of the Mediterranean with Kepez in the north, Konyaaltı in the west and Aksu in the east. According to 2019 the offical data, Muratpaşa has a population of 510 thousand 368. Since the city is the oldest settlement, the history of Muratpaşa is also the history of Antalya. Muratpaşa takes its name from the Karaman Bey, Murat Paşa, who gave his name to the Muratpaşa Mosque, whose construction date is 1570. According to the legend, King Attalos II of Pergamon who sought a place to build a new city asked his soldiers to find the "paradise on earth". The soldiers sought for the paradise for a long time, then they finally decided that the place where Antalya is located today could be the "paradise on earth". That is why Attalos II built the city there and named it "Attaleia". When the Romans took over the Pergamone Kingdom, Attaleia became an outstanding Roman city which the great Roman Emperor Hadrian visited in 130 AD; an arch was built in his honour which is now worth seeing. Then came the Byzantines, after which the Seljuk Turks took over the city in 1207 and gave it a different name, Adalya, and built the Yivli Minaret. The Ottomans followed the Seljuks and finally within the Turkish Republic it became a Turkish city and an important port. The city, known as 'Antaliye' in Arabic sources and 'Adalya' in Turkish sources, has been named Antalya since the first quarter of the 20th century. Antalya was occupied by Italy on March 28, 1919, after the First World War. The occupation ended on July 5, 1921. After the proclamation of the Republic on October 29, 1923, Antalya, which was the sanjak in the Ottoman period, became the province. "Undoubtedly Antalya is the most beautiful place in the world" This statement of the Great Leader Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk during his visit to the city on March 8, 1930, is the most beautiful expression describing Antalya.
