There is so much adoration for Ataturk in Turkey. This is another statue in his honour. Seen one nearly seen all. This is something in Antalya you visit but I would not exert myself on a rainy day.

It's a free public display of the Monument of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk...the founding father of Turkey. It's in an excellent location in the city centrum with cafes, bistros and closed street shopping all surrounding this display. An excellent morning, or late afternoon evening activity if it is very hot. Antalya gets very hot in summer and this is all outside.... More

This whole area is well worth a day trip out from your hotel. There is a bit of history, nice shops and restaurants nearby.

"Ataturk" means "Father of the Turks." This name was bestowed on Mustafa Kemal in recognition of his role in founding modern Turkey. Ataturk was a military man, He helped repulse the Australians and other British forces at Gallipoli, saving the Turks from a disastrous defeat. This memorial is inspring.
