The pillar attributed to Emperor Julian the Apostate is located in the midst of government offices in Ulus. It is close to the Roman baths as well as the Temple of Augustus and Ulus shopping and restaurants. While not worth spending a long time there,...More

It was built in the 4th century to commemorate the Roman Emperor Julian's visit to Ankara. It is in a square with very beautiful old buildings around it.
