The Victory Monument was erected in 1927 to commemorate the Turkish War of Independence. It consists of a bronze equestrian statue of Kemal Ataturk in military uniform on a marble pedestal inscribed with reliefs and quotations from Ataturk's speeches depicting the war fought against the Allied proxies and Ottoman Empire. At the base of the pedestal are statues of 2 soldiers and a peasant woman carrying a cannon on her shoulders, representing the unknown heroes who had selflessly served the country.
