Anitkabir (Ataturk's Mausoleum) Ankara Turkey

Anitkabir
(Atatürk's Mausoleum)

Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, founder and first President of the Republic of Turkey

 


 

     

This extraordinary mausoleum was built for Ataturk, the father of Turks and the founder of modern Turkey, in 1953. It sits on the top of Anittepe hill, which dominates the city.

The mausoleum is made of marble and is an interesting mixture of ancient and modern architectural styles. The walk up to the monument is along an avenue lined with 24 stone Hittite lions.

The mausoleum houses a lively collection of memorabilia from Ataturk's life and work, private library, documents, stamps, coins, books and cars.
