The architecture of Ankara is a combination of Galatian, early Roman, Ottoman, and modern styles.  The city is home to many archaeological sites that travelers can visit.  One of these sites, the Ankara Citadel, was built during the city's Galatian period and then added to later by the Romans.  Though the Citadel is now largely in ruins, parts of it are well in tact and the traditional Turkish style buildings surrounding it have all been restored providing a nice destination for tourists. 

The Temple of Augustus, built around the 2nd Century AD, was constructed as a tribute to the Roman Emperor of the same name.  This building is one of the city's best preserved examples of Roman architecture, with inscriptions honoring Augustus written in Greek and Latin on its walls.  The Temple was made into a church during the city's Byzantine period, and it still functions as a church today.

Another of Ankara's Roman structures is the Column of Julian, built in honor of Emperor Julian Apostate in the middle of the 4th Century.  The Column is almost 45 feet tall and can be seen from several points in Ankara..
