  • We visited the Ephesus ruins on 3/6/2020. On the pedestrian street is the Gates of Hercules. Reliefs of Hercules are carved on them on one side. The back side of the gate have not been found yet...  more »
  • The Heracles Gate is very impressive. Nearly everyone stops here to get photos Be considerate and get out of the way of others.  more »
  • The "gate" has been long destroyed due to earthquakes and what's remaining are two pillars with motifs on them. It's almost like seeing "the temple of Artemis" which has already been destroyed and...  more »

  • An amazing historical site. Take not of the wonderful mosaic flooring. The views of Celsus Library from here is also fantastic
  • Historical site which is a must visit place! Come and feast your eyes with the beauty of the once magnificent city! There is another entrance which needs another fee to see the historical daily use of stuff. I would have loved to go but due to time constraint following a tour group, i couldn't go😭
  • Nice monument to see but the whole Ephesus archaeological monument needs care to be conserved! Manu groups of people coming around the world don't know how to treat marbles and behave like monkeys! Please treat Ephesus as it is your history although it's Greek's!
  • Incredible preserved until now. This was the main gate separating the official area of Ephesus from the social area. At the present, there is remaining two side of the columns with Hercules figures with the skin of the Nemean lion in mythology and reliefs of the flying Nikes on the top of gate. There are no care of the monuments and ruins. The government should seriously think protecting those treasures from predatory tourists.
  • Very good experience of visiting Most ancient city of Ephesus , Kusadasi, Well managed and maintained Nice place of archeology interested people
