It is known that there has been life in the Ancient City of Gordion for about 4000 years. In this long life, there are countless works left over from the Phrygians. There are 2 big gates of the city, the main entrance gate and the south gate. The foundations of the houses here have also survived to the present day. The most important finds in the city are the hills called tumulus, where nobles and Phrygian kings were buried. There are 128 of these hills in Gordion.
When we come to the Ancient City of Gordion, many points can be visited, especially the museum where the finds extracted from the city are exhibited. The places you can visit are as follows:
Gordion Museum: There are fibulas, bowls, inscriptions and decorative bricks here, especially from the Great Tumulus. In addition to the works of the Great Tumulus or Midas Tumulus, you can also see the works of the Old Bronze Age, Middle Bronze Age, Late Bronze Age, Early Phrygian Age, Early Iron Age, Late Phrygian Age, Lydian, Hellenistic and Roman Periods here.
Pebble Mosaic Conservation: During the excavations here, there is the oldest colored pebble mosaic in the world at the base of the structure dated to the ninth century BC and called Megaron 2.
Goby Mosaic: This mosaic was found during the construction of a house and is on display in the museum.
Galat Tomb: The Galat Tomb located in Kıranharmanı Village is also exhibited in the museum.
Tumuli: The nobles buried their dead in tombs carved into the rock or in hills of masonry tombs called tumuli. These tumuli are common in Ankara and Kestenezdağ regions.
Main Entrance Gate: When you enter through the main castle gate located in the southeast of the city, there are rectangular buildings lined up around the open-top, large courtyard and these make up the palace area.
Palace Area: The pebble stone mosaic floor covering found in the palace area is the oldest example of this type of floor covering known in Antiquity.
