The Imposing Beylerbeyi Palace in the Asian part of Istanbul

By the mid-19th century, new Turkish leaders built some European-style palaces on the banks of the Bosphorus. Among them we have the Palace of Beylerbeyi, located in the neighborhood of the same name and to the north of the famous bridge. Built between 1865 and 1861 as the personal residence of Rumeli Beylerbeyi Mehmet.

But it was used to spend the summer seasons there and to receive the great important and foreign guests. It is composed of 3 rooms as main entrances, 6 large rooms as living rooms, 24 rooms located on 2 floors and, of course, the men’s and women’s section separately. All decorated with great elegance and the best taste.

The floor is covered with Hereke rugs, there are French Baccarat crystal lamps, Japanese and Chinese decorations, among other details. In addition, in its exterior and rear, the beautiful gardens of magnolia trees and a swimming pool are located.

The Eyup Mosque in Istanbul

Also, crossing the Bosphorus bridge is the Eyup district, with the first Mosque built by the Ottomans in 1459 and bearing the same name. This was built in the same place where the remains of Eyup Sultan, a friend of the prophet Muhammad, who died in 670, are found.

Place that became veneration by Muslims; Not only because of Eyup, but because it is said that some belongings of the prophet are found in this mosque. The knowledge of the tomb had been lost in time, until Sultan Mehmet II ordered the search for it, which was located in 1453, between 2 banana trees.
