Until the 1800s, Şişli was open field, utilized for chasing and horticulture and recreation. It
was created as a white collar class private region amid the most recent years of the
Ottoman Empire and the early years of the Turkish Republic (the late nineteenth mid
twentieth hundreds of years). French society had an extraordinary impact in this period
and the enormous boulevards of Şişli had an European look; huge stone structures with
high roofs and craftsmanship nouveau fashioned iron overhangs, little lifts on wires amidst
the stairway et cetera. This exchanging white collar class was made out of Jews, Greeks and

Armenians and in addition Turks, numerous manufactured homes in Şişli after an
expansive fire in the locale of Beyoğlu in 1870. Still today numerous groups of Istanbul’s
nearby Armenian group live in the Kurtuluş neighborhood of Şişli. The territory was
additionally well known with the Levantine exchanging groups of this period who settled
for exchange or were shrunk by the Ottoman Empire. Şişli pulled in transients from the
previous terrains in Greece and the Balkans. In the late nineteenth century Şişli was one of
the first ranges supplied with tramlines, power and a gas supply. The halfway house of
Darülaceze and the expansive Şişli Etfal Hospital were constructed here in this period, and
also the French schools of St. Michel and Notre Dame de Sion.
Taking after the establishing of the Turkish Republic in the 1920s, bigger and bigger
structures were set up along wide streets, for example, Halaskargazi Caddesi, the
fundamental street that goes through the center of Şişli, with its little arcades of shops
underneath tall structures of condo and workplaces. In the republic the range was still the
home of the working class, and additionally merchants there were presently scholars and
artists and Şişli gained theaters, bistros and other social comforts. The Hilton Hotel was
assembled here in the 1950s and numerous others took after.
From the 1950s onwards individuals from Anatolia started to relocate to Istanbul looking
for work. By and large they wrongfully based themselves squatters on unclaimed or
government-claimed area (see gecekondu). Some of these individuals settled in parts of
Şişli in the 1950s and 1960s, particularly at the northern segments of the region, around
The focal point of Şişli today
Since the rich first class of focal Şişli have moved farther of the city, the substantial
structures on the fabulous streets are possessed by workplaces, banks, and huge shops.
Since the 1970s most more seasoned structures have been pulled down and supplanted
with more up to date, and maybe less astounding, multistory structures. The back
boulevards are still private, and numerous average workers families and understudies have
settled here. As in many parts of Istanbul, the quantity of individuals living and working in
these pieces challenges the current base; for instance, rivalry for parking spots is
extraordinary, and activity amid crest hours can grind to a halt. Be that as it may, for the
inhabitants of Şişli, there are a lot of shops, bistros, bars, and different comforts and these
make life in Şişli wonderful. Also, Şişli’s focal area to other imperative ranges of Istanbul
adds to its allure.

Istanbul is a city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. The
Old City reflects cultural influences of the many empires that once ruled here. In the
Sultanahmet district, the open-air, Roman-era Hippodrome was for centuries the site of
chariot races, and Egyptian obelisks remain. The iconic Byzantine Hagia Sophia features a
soaring dome and Christian mosaics.
Hagia Sophia
There are many important monuments in İstanbul, but this venerable structure –
commissioned by the great Byzantine emperor Justinian, consecrated as a church in 537,
converted to a mosque by Mehmet the Conqueror in 1453 and declared a museum by
Atatürk in 1935 – surpasses the rest due to its innovative architectural form, rich history,
religious importance and extraordinary beauty.
Ground Floor
As you enter the building and walk into the inner narthex, look up to see a brilliant mosaic
of Christ as Pantocrator (Ruler of All) above the third and largest door (the Imperial Door).
Through this is the building’s main space, famous for its dome, huge nave and gold mosaics.
The focal point at this level is the apse, with its magnificent 9th-century mosaic of the
Virgin and Christ Child . The mosaics above the apse once depicted the archangels Gabriel
and Michael; today only fragments remain.
The Byzantine emperors were crowned while seated in a throne placed within the
omphalion, the section of inlaid marble in the main floor.
Ottoman additions to the building include a mimber (pulpit) and mihrab (prayer niche
indicating the direction of Mecca); large 19th-century medallions inscribed with gilt Arabic

letters; a curious elevated kiosk known as the hünkar mahfili ; and an ornate library behind
the omphalion.
Looking up towards the northeast (to your left if you are facing the apse), you will see three
mosaics at the base of the northern tympanum (semicircle) beneath the dome. These are
9th-century portraits of St Ignatius the Younger, St John Chrysostom and St Ignatius
Theodorus of Antioch.To their right on one of the pendentives is a 14th-century mosaic of
the face of a seraph (six-winged angel charged with the caretaking of God’s throne).
In the side aisle to the northeast of the Imperial Door is a column with a worn copper facing
pierced by a hole, known as the Weeping Column. Legend has it that the pillar was blessed
by St Gregory the Miracle Worker and that putting one’s finger into the hole can lead to
ailments being healed if the finger emerges moist.
