Tekfur Palace

Between Edirnekapı and Eğrikapı, there is no definite information about when the Tekfur Palace next to the city walls was built. In some sources it is written that the Byzantine Emperor Porphyrogenetos built in the 10th century and that it was actually the addition of another palace available. In some sources; It was built in the 13th and 14th centuries as an extension of the Blakhernai Palace.

The palace remained a ruin for some time after the Ottoman conquest of Istanbul. A zoo was built here in the late 17th century. According to John Sanderson, who came to Istanbul in the 16th century, Busheque went to the zoo garden to see the zoo in the zoo. When you hear that Zürraf died a few days ago; In Europe, he had to dig his grave to see this animal he’d never seen before. In the 18th century, the place used as ceramic production was transformed into bottle and glass manufacturing in the 19th century. Also; The famous Kaşıkçı Elması was found in the garbage there.

Today, excavations of art history are continuing in the structure organized around the municipality.
