Zeytinburnu (Seytin Burun) means "Cape Olive". It is located between the Wall of Constantinople and River near Chirpiji (look at the map).

more information http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeytinburnu






ottoman military hospital, now town hall


When I was in primary school, I dreamed like that could this coloum be a part of ancient temple.Big smile It is in the garden of district football team


Armenian Hospital




and church in the hospital garden


the most famous fountain in my district, "Kazlıçeşme" ("Fountain with Goose")


Gate of Seven Tower Dungeon (we use term dungeon, not english page is about fortress)

Sorry for the bad photo. These walls divide Zeytinburnu and Fatih distirict and this is one of the gate in the walls. The guy with yellow boots has very interesting job. he is the doorman of Constantinople Big smile. he decides which side past the gate and how many minutes


this is the coast


Marmara Tower-Last tower near the sea marmara (look at map)

Some years ago I took a 7 days tour of Istanbul, I thought it should be too long for just one city, but after the trip my opinion was changed, you can stay for more than one month in this city and everyday find something new.

Thanks for your kind comment. One month is real long, you can be sure that you have more knowledge about İstanbul than many people who live in Istanbul.
