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.  Unfortunately, almost all of the gate's superstructure has been destroyed.

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

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