Myndos Gate

Myndos Gate is reputed to be built in 360 BC. It is the one of the entrance gates of the city, located in the west of Halicarnassus. The Myndos Gate was built by the Carian Satrap Mausolos nearly as a shield on the city walls.Being one of two monumental gates of Halicarnassus, Myndos Gate consists of two monumental towers and behind these an inner courtyard where the gate to enter the city is located.The first part of the renovation of the city walls and the towers located in the north side of this gate was completed in 1999. 

The ditches, which neutralized the attacks of Alexander the Great’s army on Halicarnassus in 334 BC.  were constructed in the 4th century.

In the area where historical remains are located, there are vaulted tombs from the Hellenistic and Roman periods, which are thought to belong to the 4th century.
