Myndos Gate Bodrum Turkey

Enter through the Myndos Gate and be privileged to visit Halicarnassus.

In 4th C BC, King Mausolus of Caria transferred his capital from Mylasa ( Milas ) to Halikarnassus ( Bodrum ) and made it the political and cultural centre. Mausolus enclosed Halicarnassus with powerful city walls and watch towers. These powerful walls made the city very tough for Alexander the Great to invade.

Myndos Gate was one of the main entrances to the city. It was named after the ancient City of Myndos ( Gumusluk ), as it faced in that direction. In recent years, it was restored and today the gate will take you back to those glories days for a moment.
