The city was renamed Alaiye, a derivative of Alaaddin. Thanks to its monuments and historical structure Alanya was named the city of cultural heritage by the University of The United Nations Organization. After the blossom years of Sultan Alladdin Keykubat's governing in 1300 the city passed to the Karamanoğlu dynasty, with the center in Konya.
In 1427 the city was sold to the Mamluk dynasty for a period before Fatih Sultan Mehmet in 1471 incorporated it into the growing Ottoman Empire.
In 1571 Alaiye was organized into the province of Cyprus, then later under Konya, and in 1868 under Antalya, as it is today.
In 1935 Atatürk finalized the name in the new alphabet as Alanya.
