20 km from Bozkır. away from the town, Suğla Lake (Trogidis, Trogitis) was named after the mound located on the shore. This region was called the Isauria Region in ancient times. The capital of the region is Isauria, which is located in the east of Ulupınar village of Bozkır district and is known as Zengibar Castle today. In short, as understood from the excavation and sounding studies, it has been seen that the history of Yalıhüyük and its surroundings goes back to the Neolithic and Chalcolithic periods.

 

Sugla Lake

 

Its history has common features with the surrounding districts and Konya History. It is known that it was moved to the vicinity of Suğla Lake after a landslide was observed about 200 years ago. It is stated that the narrowing of the Suğla Lake area and the desire to benefit more from the lake were taken into account in the selection of the new settlement.

 

Mound

 

Since the surrounding of the mound was declared a "protected area", it was closed to development. Since no archaeological research or excavation has been carried out in the mound to date, information that will be a source for the history of the district has not been reached.

 

Gölcük Plateau Recreation Area

 

There are very beautiful recreation areas in Gölcük Plateau. "Gölcük Plateau Festival" is held here during the summer months.
