Adjacent to the Muradiye mosque stands the Murad Bey Medresse or theological college, which houses the archaeological museum of Manisa.
Sardis in Salhili is one of the most magnificent ancient cities of Manisa province. This capital city of Lydian kingdom is located at the starting point of the famous King`s road and was once ruled by king Croesus. Sardis was an important trade center and king Croesus was the first person in history to use silver and gold coins in exchange for goods. In Sardis there are the remains of the Temple of Artemis, a restored gymnasium and a splendid 3rd century synagogue with mosaics and carved colored stone panels. Sardis also was one of the seven churches of the Revelation of St. John.
Apart from these you can visit the Sindelli Village where there are the fossil footprints of mankind of 50-25th century B.C. and the ruins of the ancient city of Philadelphia, which is another of the seven churches.
