Bogazkale Kings Gate

This is the Kings’ Gate. The one statue that remains is a copy, the original is in the Ankara museum. To see it, click on this link (you'll be able to get back):

It was thought to represent a king, hence the name of the gate. Later research (the type of crown) indicate it must be a warrior god.

Here you look out into the surrounding country.
