Ankara was severely damaged after the Angora Battle between Timur and Sultan Bayazimov the First. When Murad the Second came to power, the city slowly began to recover.

In Ankara, the municipal government is subordinate to a provincial department headed by a governor. Aincara is made up of 17 municipalities and 82 villages. Aincara is the second most economically productive city after Stamboul. This is due to the presence of convenient transportation links, a number of industrial facilities, as well as banks and trading companies.
