Kucuksu Palace

Küçüksu Kasrı is a cottage near Istanbul in Bosphorus. It is located in the district of Beykoz in Istanbul. It is very close to Küçüksu Kasrı Anadolu Hisarı and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge (second Bosphorus Bridge). For Küçüksuk Kasrı, it is also called Küçüksu Palace, Küçüksu Pavilion, Göksu Palace, Göksu Pavilion or Göksu Kasrı.

During the reign of Sultan Mahmud I (1730-1754), Divittar Mehmed Pasha built two wooden pavilions for the sultan at the sea side in Küçüksu.

This pavilion was restored and Sultan III. Selim (1789 – 1807) and Sultan II. Mahmut (1808 – 1839) was also used by these sultans during his time.

Sultan Abdulmecid (1839 – 1861) ordered the demolition of this old wooden building which was here, and replaced it with the Küçüksu Kasrı.

Küçüksu Kasrı, which was opened in 1857, is a three-storey building including the basement.

The fourth room on the first and second floors opens onto a central saloon in line with the traditional Turkish house plan. And Küçüksuk Kasrı was used as a boarding pass by the Sultan for daytime visits.

After the establishment of the modern Turkish Republic in 1923, Küçüksu Kasrı became a frequent destination for Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. While Ataturk was in Istanbul, he used Küçüksu Kasrı to come and work or rest.

In 1925, Küçüksu Kasrı was given the patronage of the then National Turkish Grand National Assembly Directorate of National Palaces. Küçüksu Kasrı, which was also used as a state guest house, was also allocated to state administrators of other countries until the 1970s.

The Small Palace opened in 1983.

The tiny Kasr visit hours are between 09:00 and 16:00 in November-March and between 09:00 and 17:00 in April-October.

The small Kasrı is open to visitors on other days of the week except Monday and Thursdays.
