The orthostats hall in the Ankara Museum

The many orthostats (large stones set upright) in the Ankara Anatolian Civilizations Museum are on display in an inner (huge) room. Most are from Hittite sources.

The 2011 pictures have much more colour, in older pictures I went for clarity and detail, the newer ones are truer to the originals.

I keep adding to this gallery, the contents of the room change also. In 2014 treasures from Troy were on display here, so I add them here. I cannot promise the content of this (sub)gallery will always be in step with that in the actual content, so check the other galleries too.
