This is found near the summit of Ankara’s Citadel, which dates to the Galatians. Other Important monuments and buildings are also located in the area of the Citadel. These include ruins dating from the Roman period, Seljuk and Ottoman mosques and the splendid monument to the founder of modern Turkey, Ataturk’s mausoleum or the Anıt Kabir.
