Adamkayalar (literally "man-rocks") is a location in Mersin Province, Turkey famous for rock carved figures.

Adamkayalar is on the southern slopes of the Toros Mountains only several kilometers north of the Kızkalesi and Mediterranean coastline at about 36°31′30″N 34°03′15″E / 36.52500°N 34.05417°E.

On the rocks facing the gorge, there are carved figures in 9 niches. These are the figures of 11 males, 4 females and 2 children and 1 ibex. (The name Adamkayalar means Men-rocks) On pediment, there are also the figures of Roman eagles (Aquila). No document exists about the origin of the figures. But these figures are probably from the second century AD.
