Akköprü

Akköprü, built by I.Alaeddin Keykubad being ruler of Anadolu Selcuklu State in 1222, is located in Ankara with a length of 77 meters and a width of 7 meters. He was one of the most important Seljuk Sultans with his works, military and administrative achievements, who reigned between 1220-1237 and survived to the present day. The structure, acquired by Alaeddin Keykubad, was on an old caravan road which contributed to the development of the area. Akköprü was made using andesite stones, which are extremely common in Central Anatolia, as well as a large number of stones bearing traces of the ancient Roman period with its processing and inscriptions. Akköprü, which has pointed arched eyes that shrink towards both ends, came out of the repair work at various times with its initial form changing. Although the last repair work in 1970 attempted to regain its first appearance, today it is a partially altered structure. Akköprü, one of the characteristic works of Turkish Bridge architecture, is among the historical period structures recommended to be seen in Altindag district.
