Kırıkhan is a town and district in the northeastern part of Hatay Province, Turkey. The name Kırıkhan means "broken inn" in the Turkish language, perhaps a reference to one of the many lodgings that once lined the road. The town stands at the intersection of the route between İskenderun and Aleppo, and the major east-west road between Antakya and Kahramanmaraş.
