We stopped here whilst on a day trip and is worth the 5-10 minutes that it takes. It is basically a ruin of the gate of historical Bodrum which kept intruders out. When names like Alexander the Great are thrown around, its historical worth cant be doubted.

Our hotel had the ruins by the pool and we could have our lunch under the shadow of ancient ruins. Amazing.

This was one stop of many on a tour of Bodrum. We stopped for 10-15 minutes to walk around before going on the bus again. Here you find the "gate" to a 7 km long ancient city wall of Halicarnassos built by King Mousollos in the 4th century BC. It was one of two gates that allowed entry to Halicarnassos.... More

We visited several of the sights of Bodrum as part of a five hour walk about. This was a nice site as part of that but a visit by itself is not that exciting. It's pretty overgrown and motorcyclists use the area as a short cut so watch yourself on the pathways there. Not really well signed... Bit hidden... But... More

Bang in the middle of the city. Would have been better if we knew what to expect. Follow the directions on the road to get there.

Just a pile of stones with not much to explain the significance. Could do with more explanations. Out of the way and quite difficult to access from the town.

Not just for the Historians, Myndos Gate was well worth going to visit.Was once the ancient city of Myndos and has the only remaining gate of a 7km wall of Halicarnassus. You can walk around this ancient site unperturbed and see spectacular views from the top of the larger gate. It is a trip back in time. Head out of... More

We walked to this site from the port, which took about 1/2 hour. When you consider the history, it is an interesting site, although there isn't a lot to see. In fact, in the middle of the day, we were the only people there
