Fenerbahce or Anatolian Lighthouse

Fenerbahce or Anatolian Lighthouse
The historical Fenerbahce Lighthouse is still used today and located on the northern shores of the Sea of Marmara in Istanbul’s district of Kadikoy .  There are historical documents referring to the location of the cape that caused damage to ships and in 1562, Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent , issued a decree ordering a structure with light be built on the rocks at  Kalamis Cape as it was known then.  
The lighthouse was built in 1857 and stands on a point at Cape Fenerbahce which is close to the eastern side of the Bosphorus entrance and is where Fenerbahce takes its name from as “fener” means lighthouse.  Located in a public park south of Kadikoy it stands at 20m (66ft) high with a cylindrical form, having two galleries, is painted white and a one-storey stone keeper's house is attached to it; both the lighthouse and keepers house are under a protection order as this is a national heritage site that is open to the public but the actual tower is closed.
