series of steps and featuring a huge mosaic courtyard, together with an exceptionally beautiful gold leaf clad interior. The Changing of the Guard ceremony is well worth a look, as is the recent War of Independence Museum, which encircles the courtyard at its lower level.

Atatürk Mausoleum or, Anıtkabir, is one of the "must do" attractions in Ankara. It honors Atatürk, who was the first president of Turkey and who modernized the country in the 1920s. You can view his sarcophagus in the large main building, then peruse the museum which houses his library, medals, and personal belongings. There are also galleries that recreate the battles in which he fought for the independence of Turkey. There is a changing of the guard every hour and the admission is free. Check out the 12 lion statues on your way in or out on the "road of lions."
