I had heard that there wasn't much to see around the Gate, so i wasn't expecting much. But the Myndos gate turned out to be a nice, little place to visit. We walked from the city center to the gate, which took a little over half an hour. and the gate was actually hiding behind some residential area, in a... More

One of the 2 entrance doors of Halikarnassos (Karia city) III. Aleksandros entered the city from this door and conquered the city, but destroyed the ehole city except the Mausoleum. You can easily visit the ruins, city walls which is vey close to city Center, and the Museum of Mausoleum.

There is a long walk from central Bodrum taking you past the Ottoman Tomb to the windmills and then to the Myndus gate, one of the remaing gates into the old city. Not much to see but the whole walk is worth it and you can continue west and find the mausoleum.

The gates of Myndos are now in total ruins, not even an attendant was present, the gardens are over run, and the plants are dry and dead. Of course still pleased to know I have visited, but if pressed for time I wouldn't bother. School children obviously are using the grounds as a bit of a hangout!

Who wouldn't want to stand at the gate where Alexander lost so many men below the walls and moat of king Maussolos' awe inspiring structure? It has good plaques for reimagining ancient history and is about 30 mins walk from the town centre.

Myndus gate is one piece of art, one of the many ruins who shows us the splendor of ancient times. This gate has a amazing history not only because made part of Halicarnassus fortress but because made history with Alexander the Great in one of its battles. Fortunately was reconstructed and shows us his magnificence but the space around 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.

Myndos Gate is located at the western end of Bodrum and is one of the ancient relics of the city of Halicarnasus. Good news: it is free but bad news: no facilities whatsoever. As typical for a site like this, it has been reconstructed but the ruins are impressive and give a glimpse of the fortifications which once spanned the... More

We were "shipped here" on a bus full of people who thought this was nothing to see. We got fifteen minutes to see, reflect and photograph. Not nearly enough. This is such an important historic place and you need to know about it before arriving, because there is not much information at the site. (Unless you happen to have a... More
