It is huge a must historical place in Ankara but be aware of that it is an open air place. It is recommended to take your raincoat on cold/windy days and if you ever chance, try to take a round trip around it at night time when the lighting makes it even more beautiful.

Whenever I go to Ankara I def. go to Anıtkabir for a visit to Atatürk.You can see the mausoleum and the museums in the complex by passing through the road with lion statues.There are things to see and live more than which could be written here. Do not think even a minute and just go and visit Great Atatürk...

The building is a magnificent structure, a suitable resting oplace for Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, Father of the Turks. The building sits on a hill overlookig Ankara, Turkey's capital. The sarcophagus is crafted from one piece of reddish marble. Beneath it... More

It is an impressive monument. You have to feel the atmosphere. If you visit on a national day, it is full of people. Turkey had its greatest turn towards democracy with Ataturk. He is an incredible personality of his time who chose democracy instead of making himself the next Ottoman Sultan or Caliphate of Islam. He wanted to be remembered... More
