Ataturk Statue, Ankara Overview

The Ataturk Statue, located in Ulus Square of Ankara near Atatürk Boulevard, is a group of bronze statues depicting soldiers in a battlefield. Built during the Turkish War of Independence, the central figure of the monument is that of an equestrian figure of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of the Republic of Turkey and a military officer during World War I. There are three more figures of two soldiers and one woman.

While one soldier is calling his friend to the battlefront, the other one is observing the front. The woman, carrying a cannonball, is a reference to the contributions of the Turkish women during the war. One of the symbols of Ankara's glorious past, the central Ataturk statue stands on a pedestal in a soldier's uniform, leaning on his sword. There are no inscriptions on the statute except for four victory wreaths. The statue stands in the middle of a fairly busy road and near the popular Zafer Bazaar of Ankara.
