Ankara Citadel

Ankara Citadel is one of the most important attractions of Ankara. Located atop a hill in the old side of Ankara; this ancient building dates back from the Hittities times, but historically its foundation is attributed to Galatians and completed by the Romans. After the Byzantines and Seljuk made many changes.

The citadel was devastated by Arabian and Persian attacks and was restored later in the 14th century (in 1330) by the Ilhanli king, Keykavus II.

The citadel consists in two sections: The inner castle and the outer castle. The first one are still in good conditions, its wall were made of marble and red Ankara stone. The second one has few intact remains of its structure.
