I have visited Alahan a number of times. I drive on the road pretty much right past it when I go from Ankara to the Meditteranean coast, which is as often as I can. Alahan sits majestically on the side of a mountain, and even the parking lot is perched somewhat precariously on it. I love walking around the ruins and taking note of all the carvings and details that Alahan holds. I have never run into other tourists there, and the guard doesn't even stay there since there are so few visitors. I do believe it should be inscribed. It's gorgeous. You can read more about Alahan at my website: http://rovingvails.com/blog/2009/11/04/352/.
