Ankara Anitkabir Museum


Ankara Anitkabir 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.

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