Ankara is the capital of Turkey and the country's second largest city after Istanbul. Ankara has gone by several names over the ages: The Hittites gave it the name Ankuwash before 1200 BC. The Galatians and Romans called it Ancyra. In the classical, Hellenistic, and Byzantine periods it was known as Ankyra. It was also known as Angora after it fell to the Seljuks in 1073, and was so known up until 1930. There are many finely preserved remains of Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine architecture, the most remarkable being the Temple of Augustus and Rome (20 BC).
