Gate of the Wooden Circus or Porta Xylokerkou

Gate of the Wooden Circus or Porta Xylokerkou
There is a small gateway north of Edirnekapi called the Gate of the Wooden Circus because it was at the nearby Hippodrome the first Janissaries of Mehmed the Conqueror entered the city.  The tower nearby is where a real hero and soldier, Ulubatlı Hasan (1428-1453), climbed onto the walls near Topkapi to raise the Ottoman standard and encourage his fellow men to fight until he was killed by a barrage of arrows.  The metro station at Topkapı bears his name in commemoration of his heroic act.  The gate is also known as Kerkoporta or Little Gate.
