Just off Atatürk Boulevard you’ll see the impressive three double arches of the gates, which were erected in 130 to celebrate the visit of Emperor Hadrian. Legend has it that in ancient times, the queen of Sheba passed through the middle arch on her way to Aspensos and spent a happy night with King Salomon. With the exception of the columns, the arch is made from white marble and is richly decorated. « less

lovely entrance to the old town as you can go either side of the gate, a shame there is no information about the history anywhere by it.

Hard to believe that Hadrian was everywhere, but it's true! Enjoy the picturesque gate--but that's all it is!

This Place is located near Jomhuriat Street along with the other historic monuments but they are a few. This Gate was constructed at the time of Hadrianus , Roman Emperor and King Keighobad Seljuk.

Follow the tramway and you cannot miss the gate,but trees and traffic can make photos difficult.Benches to watch the world go by,and the occasional tram.Plenty of places for refreshment,but perhaps better to use the gate as the entrypoint to the old town.And get lost there,but plenty to see and enjoy.

An interesting structure - you can walk right under it and look at both sides of the gate on your way into the old city. There did not appear to be any information or other supporting infrastructure nearby, so you won't spend more than about 5 minutes here.

We walked to the gate from our B&B in the heart of Antalya's Old Town. The triple-arched gate was constructed to welcome the traveling Emperor Hadrian, who visited Antalya in the year 130 A.D. and it is in excellent condition again, having been later enclosed in city walls and only rediscovered when these collapsed. To either side were tall square... More
