Hall of Honor

Atatürk, the great leader, is resting beneath the most important and magnificent place in the mausoleum known as the Hall of Honor. This hall is the place where visitors, by far the Turkish nation and including foreign statesmen and their delegations, pay their respects to Atatürk.

The Hall of Honor and the rest of the Mausoleum house a variety of museums. One of them is called Anıtkabir Museum, which is in the South West part of the Hall of Honor, where Atatürk’s private belongings and gifts he received are exhibited. In another museum his book collection is displayed.
