About
A historical site not to be missed. Just off Atatürk Boulevard you’ll see the impressive three double arches of the gates, which were erected in 130 to celebrate the visit of Emperor Hadrian. Legend has it that in ancient times, the queen of Sheba passed through the middle arch on her way to Aspensos and spent a happy night with King Salomon. With the exception of the columns, the arch is made from white marble and is richly decorated.

Built in the year 130 for the Roman empire Hadrian when he visited the city.
Take close look at the main arch, center gate where floor stripped deep to reveal original Roman floor from that day .
Gate is located walking distance from Bazar, beautiful neighbourhood, Marina ..

It was hundred years before when The Great Alexander ruling the half of the world he came to visit Antalya. The peasants made this door to make a great enterance for The Great Alexander. You can step on the stones just like The Great Alexander did hundreds years before and enter the old town. Get a couple of beer and enjoy the seaview of Antalya.

The gate shows a glımse of what has been lost and buılt over in old Antalya and other parts. It ıs well restored so no ımagination ıs needed- what ıs authentic are the wheel ruts left but the streams of charıots and carts coming and going!!

Ofcourse it's a very significant gate in the heart of antalya but it can be better with some renovation and proper restoration.

Its small, free and well worth a visit. It's in the middle of town and a must when in Antalya. The gate itself is beautiful and good for photos.
