Travel Photo of the Day: On Guard at Atatürk Mausoleum

Atatürk Mausoleum

The Mausoleum of Atatürk is on constant guard by the well decorated Turkish Sentries

Our travel club didn’t know what to expect upon our visit to Anıtkabir, aka the mausoleum of Turkey’s greatest modern leader: Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. We were in fact blown away. The precision of architecture and decorated guards was in and of itself a great monument to this beloved revolutionary. Atatürk was a brilliant proponent of equality and freedom for Turkey and lead the country to independence after playing an integral role in WWI. This is one of our favorite travel photos from our tour of Anıtkabir.  The grounds of the mausoleum also have a large museum about the life and important accomplishments of what most consider the greatest Turkish president of all time. We all found the museum extremely interesting and filled with inspiring history about Atatürk and his role in Turkish history and culture as well as his positive influence on the world. Our trips to Turkey will always make a stop at Anıtkabir (literally means memorial tomb) to visit the museum and get great travel photos of this impressive memorial.
