The city of Mugla is the seat of Mugla province which stretches along Turkey`s Aegean coast in the southwest of the country. The Mugla Province has a population of over 715,000. The economy of Mugla relies mainly on tourism from the coastline and agriculture, forestry and marble quarries from the inland. Due to the recent growth of the Mugla University, which has a student population of 16,000, Mugla has found many new visitors as well as a reinvested interest in researching its architectural heritage. Also the Mugla City Museum has a great collection of archaeological and ethnographical artifacts, as well as 9 million years old animal and plant fossils which have recently been discovered.
