Feriye Palace in Ortakoy

Feriye Palace in Ortakoy
The complex of the imperial Ottoman Feriye Palace sits along the Bosphoros shoreline on the European side of Istanbul and today is home to the Galatasaray University, the Kabatas and Galatasaray High Schools and the Feriye Restaurant.  

Sultan Abdulaziz commissioned the construction of the palace complex in 1871 and it was designed by architect Sarkis Balyan as a residence for the extended family members of the imperial court. The palace was built in addition to the palaces of Dolmabahce and Ciragan and was named Feriye as in the Ottoman Turkish language it means secondary or auxiliary .

The complex consists of three main buildings on the shoreline, a section for concubines, a small 2-storey building, and has outbuildings at the rear.   Sultan Abdulaziz was deposed in 1876 and was moved to Topkapi Palace and four days later at his own request he moved to Feriye Palace. He was found shortly after with his wrists cut which at the time was documented as being a suicide.  Other members of the Ottoman imperial court lived in Feriye Palace up until the 1924 abolition of the Ottoman Caliphate that was made by the parliament of the newly founded Republic of Turkey.
