    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Julianus Column on the park at Hükümet Meydanı, Ulus is of Byzantium style and has no inscriptions on it. The height is 15 meters and contains several rings around its body. It is supposed that the column was constructed in the honor of Emperor Julianus (AD 361-363) while he was passing through Ankara.

    Behind the government buildings at the NE corner of Ulus square is a small park. The Column of Julian is located in the park (Hukumet Meydani). Erected in 362AC to commemorate the visit of the Emperor Julian. It stands fifteen meters high and has a typical leaf decoration on the capital. It has a nest at its top, haha!
