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

There are two main pillars left of the gate and some stones in front of them, also some tombs on the side. The place would be even nicer if the city would bother to clean it up because it was very filthy. You can climb into one of the pillars and the view from up there is nice, but again,... More

The site is an incredible piece of history, but suffers from neglect and lack of maintenance. The views from here are fantastic and if you do some research you will understand an incredibly significant battle took place here.

Excellent historical site linked to time of Mausoleus of Halicarnassus. The site of a bloody battle between Alexander the Great and the Carians. Tremendous views of Bodrum, Gumusluk, once the ancient city of Myndos. Well worth a visit.

Went there looking for something that wasn't there because there is nothing really to see. When you read the description of this site in a guide book it is really off because it's not what is really there, so I wouldn't waste my time with this place.

well this is a historic place. It has stones on top of another. Somehow restored. And that's just about it. Get some nice photos, though, if you dare to climb high enough on loose stones.

for such an important historic site, this is not well maintained.The access paths are badly maintained as is the car/bus parking area. No public toilets available, (seems to be a common fault in public areas in this part of Turkey).
