Sand Sculpture Festival
Sand sculpture is a special ephemeral (temporary) type of art emerging recently. Only water and sand are used in creating sand sculptures that are in the context of alternative arts.
International Antalya Sand Sculpture Festival (SANDLAND), which is among the world’s largest sand sculpture events, welcomes its visitors for the 8th time in 2014.
This year 25 sculptors from 12 countries worked on the sculptures at Antalya's Lara Beach.

Atilla the Hun, Carthaginian Hannibal, Odin, Khalid bin ab-Walid, Lionheart Richard, and Saladin Eyyubi, Qubbat As-Sakhrah and Taj Mahal are among these historical names and places
The festival area is colored with special audiovisual shows at night and can be visited every day between 10:00 and 23:00 until November 30, 2014.
