It is the center of the Turkish Government (Politics of Turkey), and an important commercial and industrial city. Located in Central Anatolia, Ankara is an important crossroads of trade, strategically located at the center of Turkey's highway and railway networks, and serves as the marketing center for the surrounding agricultural area. The city is traditionally famed for its long-haired Angora goat and its prized wool (mohair), a unique breed of cat (Angora cat (Turkish Angora)), Angora rabbits and their prized Angora wool, pears, honey, and the region's muscat (muscat (grape and wine)) grapes.

Ankara is a very old city with various Hittite (Hittites), Phrygian, Hellenistic (Hellenistic civilization), Roman (Roman Empire), Byzantine (Byzantine Empire), and Ottoman (Ottoman Empire) archaeological sites. The hill which overlooks the city is crowned by the ruins of the old castle, which adds to the picturesqueness of the view, but only a few historic structures surrounding the old citadel have survived to the present day. There are, however, many well-preserved remains of Ottoman (Ottoman architecture) and Roman architecture, the most remarkable being the Temple of Augustus and Rome (20 BC) which is also known as the ''Monumentum Ancyranum''.
