Blachernae Palace Istanbul

Blachernae Palace Istanbul
This palace complex was built by Emperor Anastasios in 500 close to where the land walls met the sea walls on the shoreline of the Golden Horn .  It was named after a sacred spring (ayazma) that was deeply worshipped and used by the imperial family on their visits to the palace.  

The palace underwent extensive reconstruction in the 11th or 12th centuries but soon after the preferred imperial residence became the Great Palace.  When the Great Palace was occupied by a Latin government from 1204 to 1261 it was left it in ruins and as a result of this the emperors made Blachernae Palace their permanent home.  There is little to show today of this once spectacular palace whose grandeur was extolled by Western observers.  

In the hillside here you will find the substructures, along with the Dungeon of Anemas and the Tower of Isaac II Angelos which may have been used as a private residence. The surrounding area of Ayvansaray (Eyvan Palace) took its name from the palace; “ayvan” is a corruption of the Persian word “eyvan” that would have described the large arched recesses that once graced the building.
