Column of Julian

To find the Column of Julian (Jülyanus Sütunu) head north along Cankırı Caddesi from Ulus Meydanı and turn right beside the beautiful old Türkiye İş Bankası. The column stands in a square that is ringed by government buildings – there’s usually a stork’s nest on top of the column. The Roman Emperor Julian the Apostate (r AD 361–63) visited Ankara in the middle of his short reign and the column was erected in his honour.
