This is quite an amazing place ... although we did have to walk a lot to get to it because of some security issue. The museum there is extensive but may not be as interesting to people who do not have interest in minute details...More

This is a great Mausoleum of a man who modernized Turkey, and greatly separated mosque and state. In addition to the tomb, there are also museums in the area, as well as an underground museum to view Ataturk's life and accomplishments.

This is a striking and fitting memorial to the greatest world leader of the 20th century. If you have time for just one thing in Ankara then Anıt Kabır should be it.
