Another tricky find

Slightly off the beaten track and shamefully full of rubbish and lads on scooters. But still a piece of history.

No entry fees, you can just walk straight in, it is only the ruins of the gate now, but still an attraction and you didn't see Turkey and Bodrum until you didn't see and research the history and culture!

Of archaeological importance and easy enough to get to, it has been restored but now is falling back into dilapidation despite the presence of the new adjacent visitor centre which again is almost empty.

We visited the Myndos Gate as part of a city tour, entrance is ordinarily free. As stated below, the gate is mostly ruins now, and although interesting, there are plenty more historical sites around Bodrum area that are more intact. Worth a visit if you have the time but don't go out of your way.

Old gate to ancient city. Not much to see and little hard to find. History of this gate is awesome. Go with car.

A pleasant surprise to see a piece of defensive wall of Halicarnassos and this Gate, recently renovated and restored by Ericsson and Turkcell. Not much remains of Ancient city of Halicarnassos which is possible to see for a tourist, besides the Gate there is the Ancient Theatre on the slope of the hill facing sea, and the famous Mausoleum.

Just a short stop in a tour of the antique stomes of Bodrum. Best way to visit is getting a cab and ask the driver to bring you to the amphitheater (free visit = 15'), the Mindos gate (free visit = 15') and finish at the mausoleum, (paid visit = 30'). After your tour of the antique, cross the street... More

Now being a part of the city, it used to be once of the entrances to ancient Halicarnassus. If you are in the area, take you time and visit this exiting historical spot.

accessible by car; free to access; looks really ancient, you get majestic feeling when you see it and walk in between the gates; the gates are quite ruined, there are some graves, interesting to read on them. there is strange large old tree growing not far, some traditional syrup is made from its fruits;
