Gumussuyu Inonu Road Istanbul

Gumussuyu Inonu Road Istanbul
This has to be one of Istanbul’s grandest thoroughfares with its central boulevard at the end of Taksim and resembling the Barcelona Ramblas.  Gumussuyu means “silver water” in Turkish although the name could have been taken from “gomüşsuyu” which means reservoir water and possibly refers to the water coming from the fountain in the walls of the Military Hospital.  Although it was renamed to honour the Republic’s second president, Ismet Inonu (1884-1973,) its original name has stuck.  

Ayaspasa

Ayaspasa is the area at the top end of the road and named after a Grand Vizier to Suleyman the Magnificent .  At one time this was the wide open space of the Ayaspasa Muslim Cemetery that stretched from the Ataturk Cultural Centre all the way down to the German Consulate and as a consequence the street was often referred to as “Le Grand Champs des Morts”, and the street was very much admired by visiting foreigners.  

Originally, a mansion had been built on the grounds here,
intended to be the Italian Consulate, but as they were unable to pay for it, Sultan Abdulhamid II gave the land to the last Ottoman Grand Vizier, Ahmed Tevfik Pasa (1845-1936).  Unfortunately the building was destroyed by fire in 1911 and in 1930 the Park Hotel opened on the site that was host to famous visitors such as Ataturk and the poet, Yahya Kemal Beyaltı, who lived there from 1942 to 1958.  This structure was demolished in 1978 and the concrete framework for a multi-storey car park that you see today has been there ever since.
