View looking north. This monumental three-entrance way gate was constructed about A.D. 212. In the foreground the paving stones lead to the gate. The people are standing where the central portion of the gate had been located. To their right is the eastern most entrance along with a road that leads to the top of the hill.

At the top of the hill a road turns east and leads up the hill past the theater and towards the interior of the city.

Only the foundations of this gate remain. The excavator, Dr. Taslialan believes that a water channel led down this street — as at Perge — but only meager portions of it remain.
