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.

This lovely statue stands looking out over one of the busiest parts of Marmaris, near the entrance to the bazaar. If you walk down either the main street or along the very pleasant seaside promenade you cannot miss it. I always picture Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who is revered in Turkey, smiling as he watches the many visitors to his country... More

in my opinion this statue to the greatest ever Turkish statesman is ok but a much better tribute is in the beautiful port of fetiyeh
