or surface research haven’t been done so far. Due to its location in Caria and

Lycia zones, it is considered that history of the district leans

was in the north of Caria zone, near the Alacatlı village that is located right beside Dalaman.

The Only Train Station in the

World That No Train Stops

The last khedive of Egypt namely the governor of

Ottoman, Abbas Hilmi Pasha wanted to build a mansion in

his land in Dalaman and a train station in Alexandria, which

was projected by French, in the beginning of the 20th

century. But the ships confused the destinations they got,

they build a great mansion in İskenderun and train station

in Dalaman. Moreover workers didn’t realize the mistake

and they build ticket office and rails in front of the mansion. When Khedive

arrived Dalaman, he realized the mistake.

He had ticket office and rails demolished. As a result,

Dalaman had the only train station in the world that no

train stops.

operates as Dalaman Directorate of Agricultural Enterprises since 1984.
