The only remaining standing gate, not a lot to see here but the history behind it makes up for it, can get some nice views from the top of it.

Myndos Gate is part of the old city wall of Halikarnassos. The site has been extensively excavated and has a significant role in the defensive make up of ancient Bodrum. There is not a lot left to see so some imagination is required to fully contemplate the site as it would have looked. Not particularly well looked after despite investment... More

I liked the gates itself, but it was nothing special there. A small territory covered with stones, some camel rides offered next to it. Worth a visit of 15 minutes.

We visited as part of a bodrum highlights tour. It's worth a quick look for photos but nothing compared to Ephesus for example. Took 10 mins to view.

with a decent guide, the story of Myndos gate is very interesting but there is nothing left of it to see and your eyes are instead drawn to the rubbish and broken beer bottles strewn everywhere

It is stg in the city close to main road around Bodrum and close to Yatch Club-Marina. In fornt of it there is a shopping center like facility which seems nice but on the other hand which is not correct accroidng to my personal opinion. That puts a barrier in between the toruist and history. Anyway that is one of... More

I was able to visit the Myndos Gate on a tour of Bodrum. It doesn't look much now but you can wander round and look. I'd been reading about Alexander the Great recently and his attack on Helicarnassus (now Bodrum) was part of the story so I could imagine what had happened. I can now say I walked through the...

The monument is a gate of the ancient Greek city of Alikarnasos which conected Alikarnasos with Mindos an other ancient Greek city in the western coast of the penisula. The Monument should be protected and respected more by the local authorities. It was unbelievable that in the place there is a hotel which has been placed in the arheological area... More
