The ancient city of Tripolis is located in the municipality of Yenicekent, in the town of Buldan in the Denizli Province. In the Hellenistic period, the city of Tripolis was in the crossroads of the Phrygia, Caria and Lydia regions. It was first founded with the name of Apollonia within the Lydia region and it was known as Antoniopolis for a short while
Although the history of Tripolis goes back to the Hellenistic Period, the archaeological material found during the sight surveys conducted in its surroundings prove that the settlement here can be traced back to 4000 BCE.
The city lived its time of splendour during the Roman Period. After the 2nd century CE a new period of construction work begun in the city and new public buildings such as city gates, streets, baths, stadiums, theaters and council halls were built.
