Konya Ataturk Museum

The house, which has been registered in 1923 in the name of treasury, has been used as governor's mansion and has been assigned to Atatürk during his visits to Konya. The house, which is purchased by Konya Municipality from the treasury in 1927, has been registered in the name of Atatürk as an expression of thanks of Konya people to Atatürk and the expression "it is the gift of Konya people to Gazi Mustafa Kemal Pasha, the president" is included in its title deed. The house, which has been purchased by Konya Private Administration against a symbolic price in 1940, has been converted into governor's mansion again and has been used as Governor's mansion until 1963.
