Reza Shah and Atatürk @ an Istanbul Avenue

In Presidential Palace district of Istanbul various photos of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk have been presented. The photos mostly have been taken during official meetings of the first Turkish President with world leaders. One of them is an historical photo of him with Reza Shah, the king of Persia (Iran) from 1925 to 1941.
Reza Shah and Atatürk were the pioneer of modernism in their homelands at the same time. They tried to remove traditional religious problems from Turkish and Persian societies and go forward.
Many people in Turkey and Persia consider Atatürk  and Reza Shah as the father of modern state.
