Very important place for Ankara and Turkish citizens. Do not think that it is forced to be simply an over-designed and popularized mausoleum for a dictator; which is not and Ataturk was not a dictator on the other hand; its better for you try to understand Turkish history, Ataturk's revolutions and the meaning of building a nation from nothing by...

This is a great place to visit to understand the miracle of turkish revolution of 20th century. We will see the history of modern Turkey carved in stone all along the walls and in the museum section beneath the main structure. The coffee shop was rather poor. I wish better relaxing areas existed.

Allow yourself at least a couple of hours and visit Anıtkabir. The entire site maps out the background and history of Kemal Ataturk - the displays are excellent and give a great insight into his personal life as well as his historic achievements (very professional and genuinely interesting). Lots of school visits when we went illustrated how important this site... More

Anıtkabir is the mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the leader of Great Turkish Nation and founder of Modern Turkey.

Especially for the Turks, coming to Ankara for the first time it is a place which must be seen. Mausoleum is attractive and the history of freedom war is done properly. For foreigners since there is not much to see in Ankara I believe they will like it if they visit. in

Ankara is generally a boring city with not so many special thing to do eat, drink, buy and visit etc. but for some reason if you are in this city then you must visit Anitkabir. You will feel the atmosphere of foundation of modern Turkey.

What a tribute to the father of the Turkish Republic. A lovely museum in the area showing aspects of Ataturk's life and various wars. Well worth allowing a few hours to take in this monument.
