The statue of the founder of modern Turkey is a great focal point and meeting place for all the citizens and visitors to Marmaris. This is a place you must visit to appreciate the the ideals of Ataturk and his forward thinking of his country.

I respect Atatürk's presence in marmaris and what he achieved in his lifetime. Very interesting for visitors to understand the local culture. An excellent visual attribute to a special person.

Every day I went to the attaturk statue. It is nice to see by day or night. This is a really busy spot as it is where most people meet up.
