Where to visit, what to do in Nişantaşı?

Travelling To History

The district, where the Ottoman Sultans did their training exercises, takes its name from the sighting areas (long stones) in various places. It all started with the Ottoman Sultan Abdülmecid’s request for the region to be settled under the name of Teşvikiye Mahallesi. In the second half of the 19th century, the palace moved first to Dolmabahçe and then to Yıldız, attracting members of the dynasty and high state officials to this region. In addition, Nişantaşı was developing rapidly due to its proximity to Pera, the most modern part of the city. While it developed as a district of mansions and palaces, where many foreign state guests, pashas and officials were hosted, apartments have been added to these since the 1910s.



Nişantaşı, one of the oldest settlements in the city, continues to have an important place in the city with its flamboyant architectural structures that have survived from those times.

The mosque, which was built by the Ottoman Sultan Abdülmecit in 1854, contains two of the sighting stones (mentioned above) that gave Nişantaşı its name and is among the must-see places with its different architecture.
