Tynada Ancient City
It is possible to reach the settlement on foot from Koçular Village Karaboğazı Spot with a climb of 1,000 meters. With an investigation made into an honorary inscription found on the Yakaafşar Village Cemetery with the inscription δῆμος Τυναδέων (people of Tynada), it is understood that the name of the city was Tynada (Τυναδεῖς). The main settlement on Sivri Tepe extends about 75 meters southeast of the summit. On the southwestern edge of the plateau, the walls are well preserved and in front there is a small antis temple in two columns. Tomb steles were also found in Tynada. The depictions of eagles, lions, swords and shields that are frequently used in the city steles are unique to Pisidia. An altar specimen found in Tynada and exhibited at the Isparta Museum today, depicts Zeus sitting on the throne.
