History
Where Kemer is located today, there was a settlement known as "Old Village" in the 1910s, which was formed by lakes and swamps as a result of floods coming from the mountains. The people of the Old Village built a 23 kilometre long stone wall to protect themselves from the floods coming from the mountains and named their village "Kemer" because of this wall.
