This is a large statue of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk which is a much visited statue in Marmaris. Many Turks come here to pay their respects and to take photos. There are usually some wreaths and banners there. It is right on the waterfront in Marmaris....More

Sits in marmaris on the edge of the marina. The turks are very proud of their history and this is evident with the flags hanging everywhere. Your walk past this anytime your in town and cant miss it.

Turkey is my favourite Islamic country and Ataturk is the man who made it so! How is it not possible to admire a man who made this country so great. A grand statue alongside a beautiful harbour and a busy bazaar.
