There are many settlements whose history dates back to a deep and deep rooted history, especially Beçin, which served as the fortified castle of Milas in many periods of history, located at the headquarters of the district of Karya Civilization and the capital of Menteşe Emirate and beside it. It is a place where the regular city center, ancient ruins, historical monuments and houses, live bazaar, world famous Milas castles and many interesting features in terms of tourism, but sometimes pass by the passers to Bodrum. The backbone of the settlement of today's Milas is the Yörük-Türkmen. The mayor of the county is Muhammet Tokat with the CHP. Because the district is on the Bodrum route, it develops rapidly and receives immigration.

A typical ending of settlements in the Anatolian language -aasa indicates that the city had been established at an early date because Mylasa, the historical name of Milas, showed itself. Some linguistic researchers have suggested that Milas, who was the first of Milas's name, also appeared in the Tyrmilis, the name used by the Lycian people for themselves, suggesting that these people might have been established during the migrations from Miletus (Millawanda) south to the Teke Peninsula, later known as Lycia. [3]. The claims that it may have stemmed from a Mylasa claimed to have come from the descendants of Sisifos and Aeolus are unfounded

Milas city, the wide and fertile plain that it dominates, and its rich marble deposits which continue to operate today in its backed mountains, has also been in an advantageous position throughout history and it is an additional chance that the coastal sherdine is easily accessible.

The oldest monument in the city center of Milas is the Temple of Augustus (Uzunyuva), built on a podium to the east of Hisarbaşı hill in the Hisarbaşı district. The only column of the Temple of Korint is still standing.
