There were several ceremonies while we were there, with visiting dignitaries in fancy dress from distant lands. So lots of marching, ceremony and salutes combined with the opportunity to visit the tomb plus the many exhibits, and take in the views from this high point of land,.

It was Ataturk's mausoleum place of beauty. Everywhere is green and the tomb of the high of a hill. The tomb has a high ceiling. And the tomb of the city can be seen everywhere. I enjoyed the visit to the site.

The Anıtkabir (Monumental Tomb), crowning a prominent hill in the center of Ankara about two km west of Kızılay along Gazi Mustafa Kemal Bulvarı is the Mausoleum of Kemal Atatürk, founder and first president of the Turkish Republic. It's well worth a visit.

An important place. A must see before dying. A humble man with great thoughts and achievements. Respect and awe fills the ones who is there. A nation was born. With so little, huge obstacles were transgressed.

Other than being tomb of Kemal Atatürk, Anıtkabir is a great monument of architecture, a huge park in name of peace and museum of Independence war and Turkish Revolution. You can witness the background and history of Turkish revolution, culture and lifestyle of a leader and effort to modernize a folk.
