38 kms from Datša at the end of the peninsula is the Carian city of Knidos, which it is said, was built for the most beautiful Goddess, Aphrodite, on this most beautiful peninsula.

There are two harbors, one on the Mediterranean Sea and the other on the Aegean Sea. Knidos was famous in the 4th- century BC as a center of art and culture.

Today the city houses the remains of a circular temple dedicated to Aphrodite and an arcade with interesting marble heart-shaped columns.
