Worth a quick look

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

A bit out of the way but worth tracking down. Free and open at all times. Only the Gate really remains of this part of the Carian city defences but there are good interpretive boards in English and impressive views around. Interesting that this ancient monument restoration was to paid for by Turkcell and Ericsson!

Imagine 3rd century Turkey, with Alexander of Macedon at those gates! Yes, he fought in front of the gates, built by Masoleus of Mausoleum fame. Worth a quick visit.

We visited this expecting it to be in better condition given its historical significance. After all, Alexander the Great walked through these gates! As is often the case, no charge to access this site and as a result it now needs a little TLC. There was a lot of litter and broken glass around, it was saddening to see. The... More

Myndos Gate is one of the two entrances of Halicarnassus. It is the only gate preserved. There is not much left of the gate or the walls, but it definitely worth to visit. You don't spend much time here, but if you walk little nearby, you could find more tombs than the one which in just next to the gate.
