Kırklar Village, where the Izmir-Aydın highway passes between Buca and Kırklar Village, was called Kırıklar Village in the past. Despite the fact that its original name was Kırklar Village, over the past 40 years it has been called Kırıklar Village and its name has changed in this sense, the habitants of the village have applied to Buca Municipality.
In particular, due to the fact that the name Kırklar is considered sacred according to the belief of the yoruks, the village headman Sinan Öğüt forwarded the discomfort experienced with this name to the Buca Municipality with a petition and ensured the start of the necessary procedures, the name of the village again became the Village of Kırklar.
