North East of Sivrihisar is the ancient 9thC BC Phrygian capitol of Gordium.
Archaeologists have uncovered a large number of artefacts from several burial mounds, tumuli, which give a remarkable insight into the life of the inhabitants over 2,500 years ago.
The excavations have revealed that there was continuous occupation of the site since the late Bronze Age.
If you have the time, check this place out. The burial mound with the cabin thing in it is the best part. The other stuff, such as the ruins of the citadel, were less impressive. I preferred other Phrygian sights in Turkey, such as Yazilikaya, which is south of Eskisehir.
If you've overlooked this area you have missed an incredible experience. Yes, it's a bit out of the way but well worth the trip. If you get a good guide like we had organised by Istanbul Stopover Tours, you will not be disappointed. You will also see on this trip the incredible tumulus. Unbelievable!
