Magnesia Gate which locates on the east side of Ephesus city, is one of three main gates of city. As it faces to Magnesia City, it was named after Magnesia. Lying 2-3 metres below the ground, it was excavated and partly uncovered.

Magnesia Gate is an unique Hellenistic construction with a courtyard which was  a triumphal arch gate and had three openings with diffrent purposes. The entrance gate had two high towers on each side to control entrance of Ephesus city. In front was a rather large paved square and behind a narrow courtyard encircled by high walls.

Site is not open to public as there is no restoration has been made.
