North East of Sivrihisar is the ancient 9thC BC Phrygian capitol of Gordium. Archaeologists have uncovered a large number of artefacts from several burial mounds, tumuli, which give a remarkable insight into the life of the inhabitants over 2,500 years ago. The excavations have revealed...More

If you have the time, check this place out. The burial mound with the cabin thing in it is the best part. The other stuff, such as the ruins of the citadel, were less impressive. I preferred other Phrygian sights in Turkey, such as Yazilikaya,...More

If you've overlooked this area you have missed an incredible experience. Yes, it's a bit out of the way but well worth the trip. If you get a good guide like we had organised by Istanbul Stopover Tours, you will not be disappointed. You will...More

This museum does not accept the MuzeKart, so you end up paying (only 3TL), but they should get into the MuzeKart program like every other museum in Turkey. Museum was full of artifacts, and what I appreciated most -- the signs (in English) actually explained...More

Some of our coach tour party did not see the reason for diverting here instead of spending more time in Bursa but it was interesting to see the surrounding countryside with all its mounds. There is an excellent museum across the road from the tomb...More

The Tomb is not very interesting, except for the wooden beams. The museum is more interresting, not only what is on the inside--which is rather limited--but the mosiacs on the outside, which I fear many people miss. The area leading to the site was interesing...More
