The King’s Gate in Hattusa (the capital of the Hittite Empire in the Late Bronze Age) was part of the city's fortifications. The gate is decorated with a sculpture of the God of War in high relief and measuring 2.25m in height. The original relief can be seen today in the Museum of Ancient Civilizations in Ankara.
