Owner description: 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.

You don't have to be an archaeological buff to be impressed by Hadrian's triple-arched gate. It is worth seeing by day and by night and it still represents a crossing point, only today it is between the new city of Antalya and the old town of Kaleici. Do go look if you are in the area.

You'll "ooh and aah" in admiration when you first drive by Hadrian's Gate (the Turks call it Uçkapilar, or Three Doors). It is located on the palm tree lined Ataturk Street. After seeing it, you must walk to it and find the inscription to read about it on the large plaque. Take some photos of it. Enjoy yet another ancient edifice -- worth at least a half-hour visit. If you are staying in Old Town Antalya (Kaleiçi), you'll easily be able to include the Gate on a stroll through the town.

A real feeling of the age when going through the gateway. Would like to stay longer. But short time gave a good impression of what it was like
