Gordion - Phrygian capital and King Midas' Grave

Click here for my page with very many Turkish cities

In June 2012 I went to Gordion, visiting it from nearby Polatlı, which I also show on some pictures. I now show the pictures of the museum at the Gordion site, with pictures from the tumulus across the road, which contains the grave chamber, the content of which used to be on display in the Ankara museum of Anatolian Civilizations (and currently isn’t, because of renovation works). I then moved on to the former capital of the Phrygian people, themselves mainly dwelling in houses cut from the rock, but their capital has some proper buildings, the function of which is hard to fathom unless you are an archaeologist.

I intend to add captions during this or next week, in the man time at least the pictures are there, and with the help of Map view you can locate them to some extent.

The Wikipedia has: "Gordium (Greek: Γόρδιον, Górdion; Turkish: Gordiyon) was the capital city of ancient Phrygia. It was located at the site of modern Yassıhüyük, about 70–80 km southwest of Ankara (capital of Turkey), in the immediate vicinity of Polatlı district. The site was excavated by Gustav and Alfred Körte in 1900 and then by the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, under the direction of Rodney S. Young, between 1950 and 1973. Excavations have continued at the site under the auspices of the University of Pennsylvania Museum with an international team.

Gordium lies where the ancient road between Lydia and Assyria/Babylonia crossed the Sangarius river."
