Jinn Tower

The Jinn Tower, located in Payas, the town of Payas, which is also famous for its ottoman-era castle, has offered functions for the purpose of monitoring the port in front of it since 1577. The watchtower is located at the heart of the military-important location; When other building wholes around it, such as pier, shipyard, complex, are taken into consideration with the complementary quality of all these strategic works. This historic tower was kind of responsible for the security of many Ottoman structures for centuries. The Jinn Tower, which has been restored in its orijinnal form in recent years, is in good condition in general respect. It has a more comprehensive structure with walls that span over a wide area rather than a vertical tower. The stylish entrance door, which also has two short column details, bears simple traces of ottoman architectural tradition. There is a café in the interior of the Jinn Tower, which is well maintained, including the surrounding area by landscaping. In this way, the Jinn Tower, where you can drink coffee and tea with a beautiful view with its location close to the port, is met with great interest by the residents of the region. Hatay is becoming one of the historical buildings that is also in demand in terms of domestic tourism, especially in the summer months.
