Myndos Gate in Bodrum (Where? History, What to See?)

Last Updated on March 28, 2021

The Myndos Gate is situated at the eastern part of Bodrum. It was constructed 4th century B.C. and one of the popular historical sites on the Bodrum peninsula. It was the entrance gate to the ancient city of Halicarnassus on the west. When Alexander the Great has come for the city’s invasion, he was unable to pass this deep, broad trench in front of the gate.

What to Expect?

The Myndos Gate is the only surviving monumental gate of the 7 km. long ancient city wall of Halikarnassos.

The city walls are the most important remains of the city of Halicarnassus. The gate can clearly be seen with its two towers.

You’ll find three entrances to the courtyard of the gateway. The gateway to the east part of the courtyard leads to the ancient city of Bodrum.
