I've seen many monuments to men in my travels but this is one of the most overrated, built on hero worship. As helpful as many of his actions and decisions were for the country (and some were not), this seems equal to a pyramid in...More

It is worth a visit as it has a strong significance to the Turkish people. It is also nice to see the architectural design of the whole place which is visually quite amazing. The soldiers put on a great display at the change over of...More

I enjoyed the visit. The monument is beautifully designed and soldiers guarding in the corners are so disciplined they don’t move a muscle! The building is constructed on hilltop so you’ll get a nice view of the city. The museum must be more interesting to...More

You must visit Anıtkabir and the museum when you are in Ankara. I suggest you come with a taxi and take the free shuttle from entrance. If you come with your own car, it is a hassle to enter and exit due to security requirements....More

It is an impressive architecture decorated with sculptures that narrate Turkish war of independence, flooded by citizens of all ages and all political opinions especially at the national holidays. I strongly recommend the Independence Museum downstairs. You can also see the Nobel prize of Aziz...More

Very impressive mausoleum which shows the Turkish people love & respect for the founder of modern Turkey. It also highlights history & battles to independence. I was fortunate to catch the changing of the Guards.

This place is bar far the best place to visit in Ankara and one of the places in Turkey. It's a spectacular memorial to Ataturk. The exchange of guards was great to see as was the museum. The main memorial building is truly breathtaking.

Well done, but not terribly interesting unless you want to know more about Turkish adoration of Ataturk. Includes a small gift shop and museum.

In every step you feel the spirit of the great leader ATATURK.The atmosphere is much more important than the physical decorations and chambers. For me, no place on earth can ever be worthy of him. But in general, this Mausoleum is bright, carefully thought, modest,...More
