According to the rumors, the city of Akören was established by the gathering of people living in seven different settlements, which are in the form of ruins today. The seven ruins that made up Akören, whose traces can still be seen today, are Akçeşme, Bayındır, Ertaş Defile, Mihrap, Kayıbeleni-Kayıderesi, Yukarı Yarımca and Aşağı Yarımca.
Among these ruins, Aşağı Yarımca occupies a special place with its surviving historical artifacts. This land, which covers a large fertile area, was a pre-Islamic settlement area, and it is possible to see ancient architectural fragments and inscriptions around. There is a magnificent cistern with embroidered ceiling and arches, considered to be dating from the Seljuks in the ruins of Yarımca. The cistern, which reflects the Seljuk architectural style, was built in the split cistern type and water can be drawn up with the mechanism on it. It is rumored that as the population increased over time in the settlement in Yarımca, water shortage arose because the cistern did not meet the need, so some people migrated to Akören and some to the Ertaş Defile.
Right next to the cistern, there are the ruins of a recently built inn. It is narrated that someone from Akören caught in the blizzard on the Çumra road in one winter and took shelter in the Hacı Yakup Inn and made a vow that "If I get out of here, I will have an inn built." When the blizzard ended and he survived, he kept his promise and built an inn in Yarımca for the accommodation of the passers-by. Magnificent views surround the Yarımca ruins, which is very green today and hosts amazing landscapes, in the spring. The dirt road here leads to many other sites, with exciting areas for photographers and cyclists on the way. If you have the opportunity, you should spend a day here, come to Yarımca where the birds sing and the flowers dance and see these beauties on site.
