Miletus is the cradle of civilization, art and science and known as one of the most important port cities in history that dates back more than 3.500 years ago. Miletus, also known as the cradle of philosophers, is where a number of important figures, including Thales, Anaximander and Anaximenes, and the city planner Hippodamos, lived, and became famous for its grid city plan. Miletus, where great importance had been attached to free thinking thousands of years ago, became the largest city and then the capital of the Ionian civilization. It is believed to have had great commercial importance as it was located where the Aegean connected to Anatolia.
You can see the ruins from the Hellenistic, Roman, Eastern Roman and Turkish periods in Miletus as it had been home to several important civilizations throughout history. These include the theater from the Hellenistic Period, Hereon, Sanctuary of Apollo, Gymnasium, warehouse from the Hellenistic Period, South Agora, Eastern Roman Bath from the Roman Period, Eastern Roman Church, St. Michael's Church from Turks, caravanserai, dervish lodges, baths, Kirk Merdivenli Mosque, Ilyas Bey Mosque and Complex.
