When in Eskisehir look for real estate agencies. In Turkish we call "Emlakci" Your Turkish friend can look into the Newspaper. If you get a flat you must pay some percent to the acengy. Eskisehir is has 2 Uni's. So that many students are looking for rental flats.

An ancient city.: Midas City....

by Arkeolog

One of the major Phrygian sites lies in the eastern outskirts of the Phrygian Highlands, in the area between Afyon and Eskiºehir. The ancient name of the site is unknown, but since the late 19th century it has been referred to by its nickname, "Midas City." W. M. Ramsay coined this label because the name of Midas was inscribed above a huge rock-cut façade at the site.
Midas City. The Midas Monument is visible at center.
Midas City is located on a comparatively low but very large outcropping formed of volcanic tuff. The site was excavated before and after the Second World War by the French Archaeological Institute in Istanbul, and again during the 1990s by the Eskiºehir Museum, which carried out rescue excavations and some restoration. The excavated architectural remains all belonged to a single settlement datable to the Achaemenid period, specifically, to the sixth through fourth centuries BCE. Since this settlement was built on the bedrock itself, there were no preserved structures of earlier settlements; yet there must have been a more prosperous settlement here during the Middle Phrygian period, especially the sixth century, because many of the rock-cut monuments at Midas City date to this period. Other discoveries at the site datable to the same time include decorated architectural terracottas, monumental statues, and imported painted pottery from Lydia and Greece. This was probably the most prosperous period at Midas City.
Main step monument with double idol. Sited at the top of the fortress.
There are an unusually large number of religious monuments at Midas City compared with other known Phrygian sites, and it is possible that the site functioned as a cultic center for the Phrygians in addition to being a regular settlement. The rock-cut monuments are of different types, such as façades, niches, stepped monuments, idols, and tombs. The largest and most impressive façade is the so-called Midas Monument, which can be seen from far away when approaching the site from Gordion. This façade, probably dating to the first half of the 6th century, measures more than 16 m in both height and width and is a rock-cut imitation of a Phrygian megaron. It has a low-pitched roof, probably imitating an actual tiled roof, which was crowned with a volute akroterion. The wall below carries geometric decoration – a series of polygonal forms in relief that give the facade the appearance of a labyrinth. Phrygian megarons may also have featured geometric decoration in the form of a wooden screen wall, and some of the excavated megarons at Gordion were once crowned with similar huge akroteria.
The Midas Monument.
The focal point of the Midas Monument is the niche shaped in the form of a door entrance. A dowel hole in the ceiling tells us that the niche once contained a statue, now missing, but almost certainly representing the Phrygian Mother Goddess. Above the façade on the rock wall itself is an Old Phrygian inscription indicating that a high priest (?) named Ates dedicated this monument to the King and Leader Midas.
Stepped tunnel.
Also cut from the rock are several tunnels with flights of steps situated along the borders of the outcropping. Two tunnels start from the plateau itself, while a system of interconnected tunnels is situated on the terrace below, on the southwestern side, but still inside the fortification system. The tunnels have not been completely excavated but they probably descend to water sources. One of their main purposes must have been to provide water to the settlement, which meant that the settlement would have had access to water in case of a siege.

Eskisehir

by ghislain69

Eskisehir is one of the oldest settlements (3500 BC) in this region. It was founded in the 3rd millenium BC by the Phrygians along the banks of the Porsuk River and its banks. The city has many places of interest; the Archaeological Museum which houses the Phrygian objects and sculptures; the Ottoman House Museum which is a very fine example of the 19th century local architecture and has many local ethnographical items. There are three significant tombs around Eskisehir: the Sheik Edibali Tomb, the Kumbet Baba Tomb, and the Cupola of Alemsah. The Phrygian Valley, the Falcon Fortress, the Unfinished Monument, and the Gerdek Rock are other historical sites to visit. In Eskisehir you will frequently see items made of meerschaum since this is the place where it originates You will see the best meerschaum stone works at the Meerschaum Museum. The Rug and Seyitgazi Museums have many examples of different kinds of kilims and hand-knit and stockings.

In Eskisehir it is possible to have good time at Sakaryabasi where there is a spring lake and fresh fish restaurants.

Outside Eskisehir is Sivrihisar (Justinianopolis), full of typical Ottoman houses and famous for its kilims. Seyit Battal Gazi (Nakoleia) is 45 kms south of Eskisehir. The mosque complex on the hill was built to pay homage to the Islamic hero Seyit Battal.

The Yunus Emre Village is the burial place of the world famous poet of the 13th century, Yunus Emre. There is a commemorative tomb built for him as well as a museum, and celebrations are held here every May.

"Birth Festivities" which are dedicated to Nasreddin Hoca, a humor master and folk philosopher, is organized in Eskisehir every year in the last week of June.

BALLIHISAR (PESSINUS)

117 kms from Ankara, on the Eskisehir road and 16 kms to the right you will find the Phrygian city, Pessinus, its contemporary name is Ballihisar. There you will see the Temple of Cybele - the mother goddess, and an open-air museum housing interesting sculptures found in this ancient Phrygian cult center, which was built in the 10th century BC.

MIDAS

One of the most important settlement centers of the Phrygians, between the 8th- and 6th-centuries BC, was Midas, situated 66 kms south of Eskisehir.

At this place of distant past, stands the ancient city with an acropolis overlooking the lower land. On its northwestern side are two open-air cult temples, carved into the rock, and the most interesting sight in the area. There are rock tombs and Phrygian inscriptions nearby, and a recently discovered underground tunnel which links the site to the valley extending below. The Midas Monument which was built in dedication to Cybele lies to the northwest of the ancient city.

Three tombs in the environs of Midas which were found at Kucuk Yazilikaya, Sutunlu Kale and Doganli Kale are especially remarkable,. Kumbet and Deveboynu are the other towns close to Midas, and visitors can enjoy the Phrygian monuments spread over these neighboring lands.
