It is a new mosque, but on ideal position. Nice view of Ankara. Centrally located near Kizilay, it is worth visiting.

This is one of the largest mosques in Ankara. It has a good view of Ankara. good place to meet somebody as a central reference point. There is a market under it with reasonably priced good food. They sell everything a traveller may need. Close to Kızılay, the central -downtown-Ankara.

This mosque is in Kizilay district, that is central Ankara. It is an imitation of Ottoman mosques, and architecturally quite poor. The competition winner by architect Vedat Dalokay was not built for political reasons; that project was later realized in Pakistan (Faisal Mosque, Khayaban-e-Margala, Islamabad, Pakistan). My advice is to skip this one, and go see the original design.
