Alinda

Alinda is one of the important Karia cities, which is founded at the Karpuzlu village in the Çine District of Aydın. When Ada, a daughter of Hekatomnos had been driven away by her brother Pixadaros from Halikarnassos, she went to Alinda in 340 BC and made this city capital. The most important structure that still remains standing in Alinda is the agora. A theatre lies at the south-western side of the acropolis. There are two tempest foundations at the acropolis. The Karia type tombs between the Karpuzlu houses are the indication of the fact that Alinda necropolis settled at the southern side of the city.
