Next stop of my trip was Ankara.
Ankara is the capital of the Republic of Turkey. With a population of 4,587,558 in the urban center and 5,150,072 in its province it is Turkey’s second largest city after former imperial capital Istanbul, having overtaken İzmir.
There is Ankara castle that we visited .
It is composed of an inner line of walls with closely spaced towers that encloses an area of about 350m by 150m, and an outer line of walls with towers some 40m apart. Both set of walls were constructed using large quantities of reused masonry. The exact date of their construction is uncertain, but both postdate the capture and destruction of Ankara by the Persians in probably 622. Foss considers that the inner walls may date from the reign of Constans II. The outer walls are generally believed to have been constructed slightly later.
