Well, monuments are worth seeing, no matter where they are in the world, and this one is just as beautiful, just as significant and historical as any other worthwhile monument.  I hope Hadrian’s Gate stays intact for a really long time, if not for ever.  I highly recommend that you go visit Hadrian’s Gate, Antalya.
