A great statue of Atatürk to celebrate the birth of modern Turkey. There is a statue of him in most towns in Turkey but this one is quite large and worth a visit

This is a large statue of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk which is a much visited statue in Marmaris. Many Turks come here to pay their respects and to take photos. There are usually some wreaths and banners there. It is right on the waterfront in Marmaris....More

Sits in marmaris on the edge of the marina. The turks are very proud of their history and this is evident with the flags hanging everywhere. Your walk past this anytime your in town and cant miss it.

Came here last year and we're so impressed that a second visit was justified. Stayed in room 582 which was great, good view and not too many stairs to climb. One of the things that stands out is the consistent high standard of service given...More

This is the centrepiece of Marmaris. It marks the meeting of the sea at the Marina and The Grand Bazaar across the road.

We passed by for some photos, and it is a nicely done and raised statue, but i wish there was some kind of explanation or history about the statue and the square itself
