Owner description: A historical site not to be missed. 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.

we passed by the Gate while walking going to the town center. We took photo only from outside the Gate and didnt go inside but from outside we could see how beautiful the architecture of the Gate and its areas.

It is a triumphal arch in the name of Emperor Hadrian. Free entrance. You can walk into Old Town. Worth to see.

Well preserved the gate also known as the three door gate is worth a visit as a photo op. The boulevard is modern and bustling with shops . A must see however is the walk inside the gate. The Old town of Anatalya . Step into the doors walk down the alleys and welcome to a grand old world charming... More

This is located in the old town. It is free to visit, you can can stop by in the afternoon or the evening to see it. It was build by the same emperor who build the wall separating Scotland from England in ancient time. It is well preserved. It is worth the visit.

Hadrian's Gate is in good condition and probably worth seeing if you are in Anatalya. A good example of honorific architecture of the time. However, it is located in a very busy part of the city and seems somewhat out of place with its surroundings...and so loses a lot of its impressiveness. Compared to many of the other Roman gates...

One of the best preserved monuments of the city lets you enter the old city and its narrow streets and small houses.

Hadrian gate is one of the three gates to the old town and the best preserved one. It is only open to walking in/out of the old town; you cannot pass by car. Worth to visit during the day and night for making breathtaking photos.

A beautiful and well preserved gateway to the old town. Incredible detailing. We found the best time to visit and get photographs without the place being overtaken by other tourists was before 10am, however it was also beautifully lit at night but to busy with crowds surrounding it.

Hadrian really got around the world. Here his gateway stands in good repair and is the entrance to the "castle area" or old town.
