Myndos Gate information
The remains of the Myndos Gate (Myndos Kapısı) are newly restored. This is the only surviving gate in what were originally 7km-long walls probably built by King Mausolus in the 4th century BC. In front of the twin-towered gate are the remains of a moat in which many of Alexander the Great's soldiers drowned in 334 BC.
