Not just for the Historians, Myndos Gate was well worth going to visit.Was once the ancient city of Myndos and has the only remaining gate of a 7km wall of Halicarnassus. You can walk around this ancient site unperturbed and see spectacular views from the top of the larger gate. It is a trip back in time. Head out of Bodrum on any west bound dolmus and ask for Myndos Carsi or Myndos Kapisi (Gate).

Went there looking for something that wasn't there because there is nothing really to see. When you read the description of this site in a guide book it is really off because it's not what is really there, so I wouldn't waste my time with this place.

We enjoyed the historical aspects of Myndos gate but disappointed at the lack of cleanliness at such an ancient monument

We walked to this site from the port, which took about 1/2 hour. When you consider the history, it is an interesting site, although there isn't a lot to see. In fact, in the middle of the day, we were the only people there

This archaelogical site was part of the L'Ambiance Hotel complex which is a disaster for it, as it was strewn with rubbish etc. However it was very interesting and has links to King Mausilos and the Ancient Wonder of the Mauseleum at Halikarnassos - worth a look if you a history buff. The Mauseleum doesnt exist anymore, so this site is a real find and a very important piece of history.
