Keçiören is the largest metropolitan district of Turkey’s capital Ankara, with a surface area of 190 km² and a population of nearly 900,000. The district served as Mustafa Kemal Ataturk’s military headquarters during the Turkish War of Independence (1918-1919). Today, Keçiören is host to the world’s biggest meteorology center, several departments of Ankara University, as well as the private residence of Turkey’s Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
