Hill (Masadağ - Mobolla) : The
Asar Hill which is located at the upper skirts of the
today's Muğla urban site and the hill is steeply rising in
the directions of west, south and east and having a plain
peak and therefore known as the Masa Dağ (Table Mountain)
by the local folk. The hill displays a rare natural
texture and also contains important archeological ruins.
The castle located here is the "Mobolla" Castle which is
mentioned in the ancient Hittite inscriptions and is
founded on the most suitable hill for the defense of the
ancient settlements founded at the region of today's Muğla
province. At the lower plain area in front of this site,
open air sacred places are clearly visual reflecting the
2nd thousand Anatolian Hittite and 1st thousand Frig and
Urartu traditions and continuing their existence at the
Carian and Lykian regions at the late periods. The rampart
ruins of the Mobolla castle constructed from the
rectangular blocks are preserved well. There is a medieval
palace constructed from mortared debris stone blocks and
having at least three floors which is settled over high
terraces located to the north of the plain. There are
burial grounds and tombs at the eastern and western skirts
of Mobolla castle.
