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

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

Its a part of Bodrum history. Dont expect to see alot. Used to be an important point in the history of Bodrum. The ruins of gate is available to but thats all. Stop by while passing and have a look.

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. Unfortunatley it is rubbish strewn and there is not enough information at the site itself, so do your preparation before you get... More

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.
