The foundations of the citadel were laid by the Galatians on a prominent lava outcrop, and the rest was completed by the Romans. The Byzantines and Seljuks further made restorations and additions.
You may enter the Hisar through the Finger Gate (Parmak Kapisi), also called the Clock Gate (Saatli Kapi) because of the public clock on the white octagonal tower.

You may watch my high resolution photo of Ankara on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 39º 56' 20.84" N 32º 51' 49.63" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Parmak Kapisi - Finger Gate .
