Ankara

The Hittite capital of Hattusas (now called Bogazkale) lies to the northeast of Ankara. The craggy hill of Hattusas was ringed by double walls and its gates were guarded by lion statues. Close to Hattusas is the Hittite open-air sanctuary of Yazilikaya, and also nearby is the Hittite city of Alacahoyük, with its double sphinx, still extant, guarding the city entrance. To the southwest of Ankara, near Polatli, is the site of the Phrygian capital of Gordion, where Alexander the Great cut the famous Gordion knot that gave him the key to Asia. Also at Gordion is the great earth tumulus of King Midas, famed in the legend of the Golden Touch.

Gathering the ancient civilizations of the land is Ankara’s Museum of Anatolian Civilizations with its unique collection of Hittite sun discs and stag cult figures, Hittite reliefs and Phrygian metalwork.
